Make Everything New --A Project On Communism
Edited by Grant Watson, Gerrie van Noord & Gavin Everall (2006)

Communism is routinely defined as defeated and its conquest the
subject of regular celebration. Caught in the disappointment and
negative connotations of the past, it has become all but unthinkable.
Make Everything New seeks to rescue the idea of Communism from
this trap. Collaborating with artists, writers and collectives,
this project has commissioned and collected counter-narratives,
abstract and unrealistic ideas, engaged political commentary and
satirical work, that presents neither an historical or comprehensive
overview nor a requiem for the past. It is a collection of partial and
subjective accounts of various creative practices, an experimental
platform for ideas and an attempt to see in what ways the communist
imagination can be materialised as art.

Contributors include: 16Beaver, Gopal Balakrishnan, Michael Blum, AA
Bronson, Maria Eichorn, Factotum, Dmitry Gutov, Wu Ming, Aleksandra
Mir, Sarah Pierce/The Metropolitan Complex, CK Rajan, Raqs Media
Collective, Dont Rhine, Martha Rosler, Rob Stone, Alberto Toscano, and
Klaus Weber.
