About this title
With a design that's half pocket book, half zine, this provocative volume offers an array of essays, interviews and artworks that describe a minor history of failure. Tracing the idea of failure through contemporary art, activism, literature and philosophy, the work cuts against notions of forward-moving progress, instead exploring various dead ends on the timeline of history. Edited by Nicole Antebi, Colin Dickey and Robby Herbst, Failure! offers directions for mapping our lives along paths that go nowhere--or worse. Contents include an illustrated study of the afterlife of Valerie Solanas and her Scum Manifesto; an exploration of the Morningstar Commune in Northern California, which was deeded to God; a comparison between the architecture of the Three Stooges and Frank Gehry; explorations of the legacies of the Weather Underground and a series of interviews with contemporary artists including Sam Durant, William Pope.L and Assume Vivid Astro Focus.
