  • The Art-Architecture Complexby Hal Foster

    Verso Books 2013; Not Available

    Hal Foster, author of the acclaimed Design and Crime , argues that a fusion of architecture and art is a defining feature of contemporary culture.

    Verso Books 2013; Not Available

    As the crisis of capitalism unfolds, the need for alternatives is felt ever more intensely. The struggle between radical movements and the forces of reaction will be merciless.

  • Gandhiby Kathryn Tidrick
