> Happy new Year all,

> Agit Disco VS The Zombie Apocalypse.
> Marc Garrett reviews Stefan Szczelkun's book Agit Disco.
> The subtle and not so subtle domination by market interests of
> cultural production and dialogue denies us all access to a wide
> spectrum of creative expression, especially those that engage in
> subjects that conflict with the agendas of those in power. Agit Disco
> by Stefan Szczelkun published by Mute in 2012, combats this
> contemporary trend by focusing on music, politics, DIY culture, and
> freedom of expression. In doing so he starts to redress the lack of
> representation across the board for those in grass roots culture and
> working class lives, whose freedoms to have a voice in society are so
> commonly restricted.
> “Agit Disco offers a breath of fresh air, in the fug of the developing
> marketisation of everything. It presents grounded examples of
> difference that contrast with the dominating view of entertainment
> systems. It features 23 playlists put forward by 23 different writers,
> artist and activists. It began as a set of mixed CDs and images, each
> chapter includes annotations and illustrations. Its contributors are
> Sian Addicott, Louise Carolin, Peter Conlin, Mel Croucher, Martin
> Dixon, John Eden, Sarah Falloon, Simon Ford, Peter Haining, Stewart
> Home, Tom Jennings, DJ Krautpleaser, Roger McKinley, Micheline Mason,
> Tracey Moberly, Luca Paci, Room 13 – Lochyside Scotland, Howard
> Slater, Johnny Spencer, Stefan Szczelkun, Andy T, Neil Transpontine,
> and Tom Vague.”
> Stefan Szczelkun is an artist and author interested in culture and
> democracy. In the early Seventies he was fortunate to be part of the
> Scratch Orchestra and has since been involved with a series of artists
> collectives. His doctoral research into the Exploding Cinema
> collective was completed at the RCA in 2002. Recently his
> collaborative project Agit Disco was published as a Mute book in 2012.
> He has been on the Mute magazine editorial board since 2009, and
> currently working on photographic and performance projects.
