More details


£2.22

The Bottled Wasp Pocket Diary is a not-for-profit project designed to raise
funds for prisoner support activities and to help publicise the work of groups
working on the myriad of issues surrounding the politics of imprisonment.
This stylish new radical European counterpart to the U.S.-centric Slingshot
Diary focuses on a new area of radical politics and history each year: the
2013 Bottled Wasp featured an introduction to prisoner support and general
prison-related history and issues; and the 2014 edition covers the history
of radical arts and artists, focusing on the importance of anarchist
and libertarian thought on the Arts, revealing its lesser known and hidden
histories in the areas of the plastics arts, music, literature, photography,
film, dance, etc.
Thus, the 2014 Bottled Wasp contains short introductions on Anarchist detective
fiction, science fiction, Berlin Dada, Russian Anarcho-Futurism and
its Italian counterpart, the Czech and Japanese artistic anarchist avant
gardes, Néo-Impressionism, Octave Mirbeau, Nancy Cunard and the anarchist
magician Mystag. We also reveal the hidden libertarian connections
of Franz Kafka, August Strindberg, Georges Simenon, Mark Rothko, Hans
Richter, Luigi Russolo, Pablo Neruda, Marcel Duchamp, John Cowper Powys,
Lawrence Durrell, Lucien Pissarro, Albert Camus and many more.
The cover of the 2013 Bottled Wasp featured artwork courtesy of Clifford
Harper, and for the cover art for next year’s diary we have a cover designed
by the well-known London street artist Stik. The diary itself is also
lavishly illustrated with numerous vignette illustrations of the artists (and
their works) that we are featuring this year.
