by Louis Armand, Charles Bernstein, Jerome Rothenberg, Clayton Eshleman, Allen Fisher, Robert Kelly, Jennifer Moxley, Alice Notley, Marjorie Perloff

Pornotopias: Image, Apocalypse, Desire
by Louis Armand, Jane Lewty
Bodily existence is an existence lived in constant fascination with a world beyond one’s reach. Embodiment, desire, metaphor. To exist on the verge of nonexistence. In the headlong pursuit of the real, of the other. Of the base materiality of the world, of religious hypothesis, of absolute relativity. Every utopia is a pornography, a...

Avant-Post: The Avant-Garde under "Post-" Conditions
by Louis Armand
"The question at the heart of these sixteen essays--alternately theoretically demanding, impishly elusive, stylistically impacted, and wholly absorbing--is this: what, in the context of contemporary politico-aesthetic practices, is the avant-garde, and how, if at all, can some version of it continue to exist in an historical moment when...

Joycemedia: James Joyce, Hypermedia, and Textual Genetics
by Louis Armand, Donald Theall, Mark Nunes, Laurent Milesi, Daniel Ferrer, Alan Roughley, Michael Groden, Dirk Van Hulle, Darren Tofts, Thomas Jackson Ri
There is a rigour and a set of seemingly limitless practical and theoretical demands involved with JoyceMedia that make it a difficult proposition for those more used to the "method" of applying theories that have already been worked out elsewhere. It is arguable, indeed, that after deconstruction, the fusion of genetics and hypertext...

by Clare Wallace, Louis Armand, Helene Cixous, Gayatri Spivak, Michel Delville, Joseph Valente, Fritz Senn, John McCourt, Sheldon Brivic, Vicki Mahaffey

by Louis Armand, Joshua Cohen, Tom McCarthy, Iva Pekárková, Donna Stonecipher, Holly Tavel, Jáchym Topol, Clare Wigfall, Thor Garcia, Myla Goldberg
Prague with its legendary charms is, in fact, one of those cities that effectively pin down poetic thought, which is always more or less adrift in space.
