A Clarion Call for Cultural Resistance in a Digital Age 

Welcome to an extraordinary journey into underground culture from visionary publisher Jefferson Hack.

In the spirit of progressive individualism at its core every single copy is unique, emblazoned with an individuated, numbered cover displaying a one-off fresco of the provocative material between its pages. If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything.

About the Author:

Jefferson Hack is the editorial director and cofounder of Dazed Media. Hans Ulrich Obrist is codirector of exhibitions and programs and director of international projects at Serpentine Galleries. Björk is an Icelandic composer, musician, and singer. Tilda Swinton is a British actress and fashion icon known for both arthouse and mainstream films.

Review:

"On its face, it may seem out of character: a publishing icon whose exploits helped usher in the dawn of digital media opting for an old-fashioned hardcover book for his career antholoy. That is until the first page of Jefferson Hack's We Can't Do This Alone: Hack the System is cracked - perhaps even before. With provocative imagery and textured typography, the cover itself reflects the subversive-cool, 'punk positivist' ethos the transdisciplinary Hack cultivated for decades . . . Through the lens of celebrity collaborators, artists, fellow provocateurs, muses, and many others, the book chronicles Hack's fight against safety - what he considers the most unnatural state for a creative."

Book Description Rizzoli International Publications, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For more than twenty years, Jefferson Hack has pioneered the idea of magazines as communities. He is responsible for several of the most enduring fashion and pop culture publications, including Dazed and Confused, founded in 1991, AnOther Magazine, and Another Man. Edited by Hack himself, this book will include multiple voices from visionaries such as Hans Ulrich Obrist, Bjork, and Tilda Swinton, original works from his magazines, digital projects, stills from experiential exhibitions, and collaborative film, television, and photography projects masterminded with such cultural provocateurs as Rankin, Kate Moss, U2, and Thom Yorke. This insightful book reveals Hack s avant-garde and collaborative working method, illustrating how a transdisciplinary approach can break the conventional mold of a magazine into a modern experience that extends into the realm of film, websites, exhibitions, and beyond. We Can t Do This Alone seeks to share methodologies and inspire creatives to challenge the boundaries of how we perceive culture, suggesting anti-formula processes that can be adopted to define what the future of publishing and communication may look like in the fast evolving media landscape of the twenty-first century.
