Complicity is a micro-collaborative alliance at the borders of established organizational systems. In a diversity of subversive possibilities, their critical potential unfolds. Three aspects of alternative, critical thinking become clear: the interfaces of macro- and micro-collectives, the dependencies and interrelations of (critical) art and the economy, and the field of tension between “legal” and “illegal.” The book is a handy, very carefully designed reader that combines theoretical and artistic positions.
