Donna Haraway, Manifestly Haraway, University Of Minnesota Press, 2016

Breaking down the binaries: two manifestos and a conversation on dogs and cyborgs, the implosion of technology, and human and nonhuman beings.

Manifestly Haraway brings together the momentous “Cyborg Manifesto” and “Companion Species Manifesto” to expose the continuity and ramifying force of Donna Haraway’s thought. Haraway joins in a wide-ranging exchange with Cary Wolfe on the history and meaning of the manifestos that promises to reignite needed discussion in and out of the academy about biologies, technologies, histories, and still possible futures.

Julie Ault, Alternative Art New York, 1965–1985, University Of Minnesota Press, The Drawing Center, 2003

By the mid-1960s, New York's art establishment-its major museums and galleries-had ceased to reflect the city's diversity and had largely ignored the decade's social, political, and cultural ferment. In response, marginalized artists created an oppositional network of organizations, exhibit spaces, and cooperative galleries that both paralleled and challenged the status quo. This alternative art movement flourished for more than two decades, repositioning New York at the center of international contemporary art. Alternative Art New York brings together a diverse group of artists and critics to explore the origins and evolution of this diffuse and vibrant cultural scene from a variety of perspectives: political, philosophical, organizational, economic, and aesthetic.
Locating the movement within both the art world and its larger social and political context, these authors decipher the shifting configurations of cultural power in this period and the complex relationship between the mainstream and the marginal. With a unique, annotated chronology of the alternative art scene from 1965 to 1985, and illustrated with 150 images of key works, installations, and exhibits; reproductions of posters, communiqués, and other ephemera; and photographs of protests and meetings, this volume is an important work of contemporary art history and a valuable sourcebook that suggests the basis for the return of an artist-driven cultural economy.
