Red Wedge No. 2, "Art Against Global Apartheid"

from 12.00

Roughly one hundred full color, illustrated pages of essays, commentary, poetry, art, comics and reviews. "Apartheid" in today's world does not describe only a particular legal circumstance in this or that corner of the globe. Art, literature, music and creativity, in a very basic sense, are a bending of time and space, a defiance of the ways racism, capitalism and imperialism have shaped our world. They dare us to imagine over the walls. 

Pieces include:

  • A roundtable discussion with author and activist Walidah Imarisha, radical scholar Robin DG Kelley, and Jonathan Horstmann of "futurepunk" group BLXPLTN on the Radical Black Imagination
  • A series of essays on art and cultural exchange under neoliberalism from Bill Crane, Stella Becerril and Alexander Billet
  • Poetry from Demetrius Noble, Prerna Bakshi, and Anthony Squiers
  • Octavio Quintanilla reviews Remi Kanazi's Before the Next Bomb Drops
  • Our first ever printed version of "Red Wedge Comix," featuring the work of Michelle Sayles
  • Colin Revolting revisits Rock Against Racism through the work of Syd Shelton
