Fantasies in Permeable Structures
Factory School. 2005. 76 pages, perfect bound, 6.5x9.
Description: This book takes the idea that history is not linear as its starting point. Can "outmoded" discursive forms do more than appear as the junkyard backdrop for the imperatives of capitalist cultural production? What speaks through what is already there? If we can think of the present as the future of its past, is it possible to re-spatialize the present from behind the bulwark of postmodernist procedures?
Laura Elrick is also the author of sKincerity (Krupskaya, 2003) and is one of the featured writers on Women In the Avant Garde, an audio CD produced by Narrow House Recordings in 2004. Excerpts from the scores of a performance (created with detourned language from Fantasies in Permeable Structures) was published by Belladonna* in 2006.
