January 2013

Cindy Milstein & Erik Ruin, Paths Toward Utopia: Graphic Explorations of Everyday Anarchism Anarchist scholar Cindy Milstein joins radical graphic artist Erik Ruin for a series of short interventions into some of the here-and-now practices that prefigure, however imperfectly, the self-organization that would be commonplace in an egalitarian society. Their new collaboration mines what we do in our daily lives for the already-existent gems of a freer future—premised on anarchistic ethics like cooperation and direct democracy.
