The Black Box Collective

Black Box Collective

The Black Box Collective emerged after several years of symposia, reading groups, philosophy camps, and wood splitting. The poets, journalists, academics, metaphysicians, artists, and strategists of the collective gather regularly at a retired dairy farm in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains north of Seattle to explore themes of consciousness, community, and circulation of the communizing current—and to discover and assemble a critique that will wake us from the dream world that is seamlessly reproduced by capitalist culture. The first volume of Black Box: A Record of the Catastrophe was assembled by Nadya Zimmerman, Eirik Steinhoff, Stuart Smithers, Brendan Kiley, and Bethany Jean Clement, with assistance from many others.

Praise

Black Box subverts the implicit agenda of most media outlets to deny the truth or to distract us from it. The journal investigates what is a necessary step towards understanding what needs to be.”
—Gabor Maté, MD, author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

“What happens if you walk away? What happens if you don’t? Black Box is both a philosophy of the street and a poetics of revolutionary encounter. Every page is voltage, orientation, verge.”
—Bhanu Kapil, author of Ban en Banlieue

“To think against and beyond the human catastrophe that is capitalism, we need to break down walls, open doors, cross thresholds, communize wherever we can—a black box not as containment but as focal point of the movement of undefined, undefinable rupture.”
—John Holloway, author of Change the World Without Taking Power: The Meaning of Revolution Today

Black Box is either our collectively written obituary or a time capsule of capitalism in its death throes. Let’s make it the latter.”
—Will Potter, author of Green Is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege
