Look at Hazards, Look at Losses developed out of a series of conversations, exchanges and visits between kuda.org, GKP, Anthony Iles and Marina Vishmidt over 2015-2017 through which different approaches to common problems of cultural production in early-21st century Europe and its peripheries were debated and conceptually probed. Setting out from Theodor W. Adorno’s concept of ‘the aesthetic relations of production’ these discussions proceeded to explore problems bearing upon organisation in small groups in the field of culture, philosophical idealism and materialism, poetry, error and crisis. The anthology assembled reflects these concerns through engagement with the writing of others who have helped orientate us through these discussions. The book which is the outcome consists of seven original contributions by poets and theorists which attempt to move toward new political interventions in culture and beyond ‘crisis as a way of life’.

Anti-Wall – Contribution to a more or less caput comprehension of Surrealism

Anti-Wall has come together as one of many steps in kuda.org and GKP collaboration with Howard Slater over recent years. This latest co-operation saw us coming together around a mutual interest in the manifestations of the Surrealist movement both locally and world-wide. Anti-Wall, then, operates as a conjunction point (‘communicating vessel’) between the Belgrade Surrealist Group and those in the Antilles that came together around the journals Legitimate Defence and Tropiques. It also became a means of investigating political, affective and art organisations, then, here and now:

Infra- and OurOrganization, politics as thought, distance from the State and political parties are just some of common themes embedded into the poetic and experimental transduction of Anti-Wall, originally published by Surrealist Publications, Belgrade in 1932 (by Marko Ristić & Vane Bor). This book, we hope, will help us get over our own walls.
