Alex Martinis Roe, To Become Two - Propositions for Feminist Collective Practice, Archive Books, 2018

This publication offers a narrative of artist Alex Martinis Roe's research into a genealogy of feminist political practices in Europe and Australia from the seventies until today.

These practices include those of the Milan Women's Bookstore co-operative; Psychanalyse et Politique, Paris; Gender Studies (formerly Women's Studies) at Utrecht University; a network in Sydney including people involved in the Sydney Filmmakers Co-operative, Feminist Film Workers, Working Papers Collective, and the Department of General Philosophy at Sydney University; and Duoda – Women's Research Centre and Ca la Dona, a women's documentation centre and encounter space in Barcelona. Drawing from their practices and experiences, Martinis Roe's research forms a proposal for a transgenerational approach to feminist politics. This is further developed as a practical handbook of twenty new propositions for feminist collective practice, which were formed in collaboration with a network of contributors through experiments with these historical practices.

Pedro Neves Marques, The Forest & the School – Where to Sit at the Dinner Table?, Archive Books, 2015

An anthology interrogating the concept of antropofagia in Brazilian thought and its philosophical, ecological, and cosmopolitical influence.

To eat a frog, the missionary Jesuit priest, the enemy tribe, the whole history of colonial domination in South America, is to serve your ancestor at a dinner table, without nostalgia, for what you are digesting is your future as a human—and that includes a frog-future as well. In the Sixteenth century, the image of Amerindian anthropophagy was at the center of disputes on the meaning of humanity. In the early Twentieth century, it was again re-discovered by the Brazilian avant-garde associated with the imprint Revista de Antropofagia. Antropofagia is a cosmopolitical philosophy, a cannibal metaphysics extending well beyond a pacifying, multicultural view of appropriation. Eating another human is to cross the ontological boundaries imposed by Western modernity, capitalist labor, the Cartesian-Freudian self. Nature and culture are in the perspective of the hunter and the hunted. To become prey is the movement of humanity.

The bookgathers texts from sixteenth century chronicles on cannibalism, the Brazilian avant-garde, the multinaturalist perspectivism, the declaration of the Rights of Nature, the centrality of the indigenous in current political struggles, as well as Tropicália.
