art and anarchism

It seems that anarchism is in the air... or at least several recent books that address contemporary anarchist ideas. I just came accross Roopa Singh's review of Realizing The Impossible (AK Press), edited by Josh MacPhee and Eric Reuland. It made me want to rush out and buy it... I have been reading another AK press anthology called No Gods, No Masters which is a historical look at some of the (mostly european) theorists of Anarchism. And of course, there's David Graeber's short read Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology which I can't recommend highly enough... You can order or download that here.

I realize this is an old post, but I just wanted to mention that there's also Allan Antliff’s Anarchy and Art: From the Paris Commune to the Fall of the Berlin Wall. I wrote a little something about it at my blog, although I much preferred the MacPhee/Reuland book (which I barely even mentioned in the post?!?!).

Anyway, ignore the 'art soldier' moniker. It's an older, now defunct blog project of mine, and I just used the login so I could comment here (maybe you could change the settings?).
