PRE-ORDER : ON HOLD//TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES - SHIPPING FALL 2023 (APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAY)
To help raise funds for our next publications, we are re-releasing the pamphlet CAPITALISM IS JUST A REALLY BAD WAY OF ORGANIZING COMMUNISM: a conversation between journalist and photographer Neal Rockwell (Montreal), and the late anthropologist and anarchist David Graeber.
Graeber and Rockwell met up at an anthropology conference at the Palais de Congres in 2011. The resulting conversation was transcribed and released to coincide with a screening of Rockwell’s film. The conversation stems from Rockwell’s reading of Graeber’s paper on Marcel Mauss, entitled “Give it Away,” and moves through Graebers theories on debts, markets and notions of freedom.

In 2011, we printed two pamphlets as a collaboration between our then-gallery and then-publishing vehicle that attempted to make sense of the economic and political atmosphere that followed the Occupy movement and the Montreal student strikes. This vehicle also produced an exhibition series, entitled WHAT DO WE DO NOW NOW WE WAIT. All of these projects were organized around the idea of the stakeout as well as the compounding effects of extreme vigilance, internal drama, and static. The two pamphlets were some of the most widely circulated publications we’ve produced to date.
CAPITALISM IS (STILL) JUST A REALLY BAD WAY OF ORGANIZING COMMUNISM is by Neal Rockwell and David Graeber (RIP). It was edited by S.F. Ho and Danielle St-Amour. Design and layout by Jeremy McCormick.
