Salvage Magazine #11: Already, Not


5 in stock


Salvage is a bi-annual journal of revolutionary arts and letters.

Salvage, recognising that the catastrophe is already upon us, and that the decisive struggle is over what to do with the remains, is for a communism of the ruins. Salvage is committed to publishing the best radical essays, poems, art and fiction without sectarian, stylistic or formal constraint. Salvage requires only that they cleave to liberation. Salvage was founded in 2015 by Jamie Allinson, Charlotte Bence, Magpie Corvid, China Miéville, Richard Seymour and Rosie Warren.
