This book chronicles a purposely disorderly reinvention of Allan Kaprow’s 1962 performance through reflections, historical essays, documents, and photographic collages.

Sun Ho Lee’s
Is This a Typo?

This collection of personal stories creates a collaged family album of people living in between names, places, cultures, languages, and identities.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s ABJD and Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth

Christina Sharpe’s Ordinary Notes

This book offers temperature checks, tonal shifts, and a certain privacy for her Black readers. It involves a deep investment in the language making practice endowed by her mother.
