Field Guide to a New World Order
Pt. IV - détournement
This series offers a practical how-to guide to revolutionizing our politics, our communities, and ourselves. Each Field Guide translates one big idea into grassroots action, with personal strategies for navigating the dangerous times ahead.
Field Guide Pt. IV - détournement revisits the radical origins of aesthetic combat. It recounts the visual back-and-forth between culture jammers and corporate America—lobs from the left that impaled big corporations on their own sword, the swift and deadly response, and then the complacency from the left that followed. This field guide urges the left towards a new understanding of its politics and its activism.
These zines are practical guides for revolutionizing. They're meant to be read, spread, ripped, shared and destroyed, just like the chains that bind us.
