The purpose of this website is to provide activists, radicals, revolutionaries, and otherwise left-leaning individuals, who are working to put together flyers, pamphlets, zines, propaganda etc., with high resolution graphics. Most of the images you will find are of an inherently anti-authoritarian, anti-status quo nature. Of course, everything depends on the context that the image is used. Some of the images are not radical in and of themselves, but they might serve a purpose for certain radical groups/projects (eg. images of animals for animal liberationists).

A tribute to graffiti art and the city where it all began. Blest, a 19-year-old graffiti writer, has just graduated from high school. With no ambition toward mainstream goals of work and family, he spends his time bombing the city with graffiti messages until he and his crew become the most wanted bombers by the corrupt NYPD Vandal Squad. He even attracts major media and gallery attention for his tags. Also part of Blest's crew are Buk 50 and his younger brother Lune, whose arrest and beating by the NYPD causes the crew to wage a full-on graffiti war against the city. As they fight with their spray cans and their tags, Blest meets a political activist, Alexandra. Soon after, Blest's relationship with Buk 50 and the crew fragments as Blest ponders his position in life.

Four different films, bringing together the experience of the synergy between the travelers/squatters, and the rave scene, that birthed the Free Party movement. More or less explicitly political, these traveling sound-systems have taken the liberatory party across the world, crossing borders, melding cultures, and tackling war zones. The four documentaries are 23 Minutes Warning: The Spiral Philosophy Documentary (1994), on bringing together several interviews with the founders of the legendary Spiral Tribe; Storming Sarajevo (1996), following the adventures of the Desert Storm sound system, in their peace-protests that eventually took them to the war in Bosnia; Mission To India [2001), telling the story of Sound Conspiracy, the reunion of three sound systems that took off on a mythical quest to India; and African Expedisound [2002] follows the encounter between European free-party people and passionate African musicians, as they travel across Morocco, the Sahara desert, Senegal and Mali. 165 minutes in total, with bonus features of Reclaim The Streets party, and trailers.

Deptford.TV Diaries II - Pirate Strategies

This reader problematises the notion of ‘tactical media’. As McKenzie Wark and others stated already in 2003: ‘can tactical media anticipate, rather than be merely reactive?’ By calling for a strategic approach to media production and distribution, the intention is to overcome some of the structural paradoxes inherent to ‘alternative’ or ‘oppositional’ media, especially since much of the free / open culture dissemination on the Internet has become the new “mainstream” in
itself (think of the casual defiance of copyright played out relentlessly and on a mass scale with file-sharing, social networking, and everyday
media consumption).
The book is a compilation of theoretical underpinnings, local narratives and written documentation not only of the Deptford.TV project but of phenomena relating to this new situation of ‘strategic media’.
