Baedan 1 made a big splash on the scene years ago: a stylish, good looking, black and silver journal subtitled "a journal of queer nihilism," bringing thoughts on reproductive futurism (a la Lee Edelman) together with Guy Hocquenham and Bataille, illustrated with intricate line art (Beardsley) in an exciting melange.

Baedan 2 continued this journey, with the subtitle "a journal of queer heresy."

And this year brings us Baedan 3, "a journal of queer time travel," which continues to pose and flesh out a queer critique of civilization. From the beginning Baedan has taken queer to mean not just coming from outside of (and disruptive to) the family, but also to be an analysis that is weirder than others, "outside" in multiple senses.

It includes an exploration and interrogation – with some help from Copi, Michel Foucault, and Samuel Delany – of the 'coming out' of the early gay liberation movement, and its relationship to identity and time; a reading of the interweaving friendship and conspiracy between James Baldwin and Jean Genet with particular attention paid to the lessons they offer to those living and fighting today; a critique of sexual liberation, published with an introduction in memory of our dearly departed Chris Chitty; and a multiplicity of diverging correspondences inspired by and engaging with a polymorphous corpus including: Diane di Prima, Guy Hocquenghem, Zach Blas, the Dark Mountain project, Austin Osman Spare, Alejandro de Acosta, chaos magic, Afro-pessimism, black feminism, critiques of the human, queer theory, urban rioting, the epic of Gilgamesh, the kurdish struggle for autonomy, very bad nihilism, encryption, utopia, holes, the occult, the ecstatic, the flesh.

 

This issue is 270 pages, set in Bodoni and Futura, with artwork throughout by Austin Osman Spare. Printed and bound in Seattle with covers printed by Eberhardt Press.
