Anthony Iles and Tom Roberts - All Knees and Elbows of Susceptibility and Refusal

Anthony Iles & Tom Roberts - All Knees and Elbows of Susceptibility & Refusal

£8.99

  • Date of Publication : 2012
  • ISBN : 978-0-9565201-3-5
  • Publisher : Strickland Distribution, Transmission Gallery and Mute Books

The book All Knees and Elbows of Susceptibility and Refusal began as a discussion between two friends, Anthony Iles and Tom Roberts, about the politics of writing history. Neither are trained historians. They have assembled a critical and necessarily partial picture of the practice of 'history from below': historiographical tendencies which sought to uncover the agency of 'ordinary people' in challenging capitalism and developing different forms of social organisation. All Knees and Elbows surveys the work of a number of British and international left historians and groups, including Silvia Federici, History Workshop, Eric Hobsbawm, C.L.R James, Peter Linebaugh, Sheila Rowbotham, Jacques Rancière and E.P. Thompson.

"We've veered towards the subjects, areas and materials which interest us. These include questions of sources and their uses, working class education and self-education, welfare and the wage, language, historical authenticity and literary inventiveness, and contemporary political instrumentalisations of radical history. The book attests to the importance of reading history critically against the present.”

Published by Strickland Distribution, Transmission Gallery and Mute books as part of the series Knowledge is Never Neutral. It was launched with a film screening and discussion event at Transmission Gallery, Glasgow on 24th November 2012. 310 page paperback.

Klaus Weber - Bee Works

Klaus Weber - Bee Works

£18.00

  • Date of Publication : 2009
  • ISBN : 978-0-9529002-9-0
  • Publisher : Transmission Gallery
Produced in support of Weber's first solo show in Scotland at the gallery in 2009. This energetic publication records the production of a series of paintings (stretched canvases that have been defecated on by "cleansing" bees) and the subsequent proposal for an action to cause a bee swarm on the statue of Adam Smith in Edinburgh. Serving as a rhetorical "collective hallucination" with regard to Smith's intellectual legacy, Klaus Weber continues to develop fresh and exciting challenges to normative social relations through the historical symbolism of the hive as social metaphor and art as a social strategy. The catalogue includes an essay by Tom Holert. 40 pages.
