Demonstrating Relevance: Response-Ability

A collection of texts and visual works with the suggestive title Demonstrating Relevance: Response-Ability, and subtitle Theory, Practice and Imagination of Socially Responsive Communication - edited and curated by Oliver Vodeb and Nikola Janović - brings a different, fresh and radical interdisciplinary reflexive look at communications, design and media practices and theories. It contains works that were created between 2002 and 2009 in the context of the International Festival of Radical Communication MEMEFEST and additional new reflections written in the end of 2010. It also includes classic texts by Bruno Latour, Douglas Rushkoff, Richard Barbrook, Naomi Klein and John Arquila and David Ronfeldt. This is a crucial book for anyone interested in radical and socially responsive design, art and communication.
