From the Quarterly

Consumption of Culture as Politics

In Mexico, state-sponsored films allow symbolic critique to supplant structural change.

Stefano Harney (part 2)

We might say partial education is sisterhood and brotherhood of, with, and for the general antagonism.

Full Stop Quarterly: August 2017

This issue of the Full Stop Quarterly is concerned with the processes and systems that make up and facilitate writing and reading, and in particular with poetry, the perpetual avant-garde.

Stefano Harney (part 1)

Leisure, hanging out, as the ground for collective practice, as emergent, collective practice under constant revision, but also as the struggle against the time and unit measures, against the access, of logistical capitalism. Leisure as struggle. That was Michael Brown and his friends.

Begging for Utopia

A typology of the beggar in Western culture.

The Anarchist in the Woodshop

The contradictions of nostalgic crafting.

Jen George

I don’t write just to see what’ll happen. I’m not interested in hippy art. I’m in conversation with certain things and I work to get all of those things into a unified place.

The God of Things as They Aren’t

The grotesque humor of Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s photography.

Cool as in Cold-Press

We sold ten-dollar juice to people who say, “fuck the rules” while, simultaneously, making the rules.

Portraits, Ghosts, and Winters

Though there are days when I can see snow on the peaks of the San Gabriel mountains, the only other way I know how to have a feeling of winter is to see an image of it in a painting or movie, or to read it, and sometimes to write it. I admit that I write and read partly for escape, or maybe to travel is a better way to say it.
