About : The financial crisis promised a new chapter in political and economic history. But this appears to have been delayed. Modern consciousness is shaped by the notion of crisis, which the idea of ‘post-modernity’ then threw into doubt. But now, as we grow bored of the banality of change and financial uncertainty, and fearful of our inability to respond to disasters, we are waiting for a crisis to finally go critical.

Zipped Archive (all 16 eBooks) A4 | US Letter PDF 28Mb

About : An A-Z of The Ting: Theatre of Mistakes comprises 16 ebooks with documents (texts, letters, photographs, diagrams, artworks) drawn from this 1970s performance collective’s private archive and from original research conducted by Marie-Anne Mancio and Jason E Bowman. Each book has 26 pages, referencing the alphabet, however there is no more reason to begin with ‘A’ than ‘V,W,X,Y & Z’ and the democratic format of the set means entries are placed in unexpected proximity. Encouraging circuitous rather than linear, multi-perspectival rather than singular, readings and reflecting The Theatre of Mistakes‘ interest in chance, mutuality, and inconsistency, the A-Z is part introduction, part photo-essay, part-question, and part gossip.
