Published by Roma Publications, Amsterdam, 2021, 424 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 11 × 18 cm, English

Price: €24

Experimental Jetset’s second volume in its self-reflective series is an inquiry into the role of the city as an infrastructure for language and vice versa, seen through the lens of four significant movements: Constructivism, Situationist International, Provo, and Post-Punk. Emerging from a research project and exhibition by the design studio, the book features extensive footnotes by 20 guest authors, including Linda van Deursen, Owen Hatherley, Adam Pendleton, Simon Reynolds, Lori Waxman, Mimi Zeiger, and others. An added bonus: it comes with a 26-page zine, zooming in on the design typology of the original exhibition.

THE KYIV INTERNATIONAL – ’68 NOW

Published by Archive Books, Berlin, 2019, 90 pages (b/w ill.), 11 × 18 cm, English

Price: €6

This publication was conceived by Visual Culture Research Center in Kyiv and tranzit in Prague as a follow-up of The Kyiv International – ’68 NOW project conducted in May 2018. This collection of texts by contemporary historians, political philosophers and artists explores the political and cultural heritage of the revolt and struggle of 1968, the legacy of which remains a symbol of liberation and rebellion against entrenched power structures, and a cultural and artistic benchmark for Western Europe. The commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Prague Spring and Soviet military invasion of Czechoslovakia continues to define political and cultural divides across the continent.
