SLOW AND SOFT AND RIGHTEOUS, IMPROVISING AT THE END OF THE WORLD (AND HOW WE MAKE A NEW ONE)
Sales of Co—Conspirator Press books are split 60/40 between the press and the author. As a press, it's important to us to set prices that are accessible for folks while still supportive to the author. If you are someone who has more resources and are able to pay more for our publications, we have added two additional pricing tiers that you can select when purchasing a book. By paying a higher price, you are redistributing more resources to both the press and the authors. Thank you for your support!
sonia louise davis’ slow and soft and righteous, improvising at the end of the world (and how we make a new one) spans five years of the artist’s writing. These collected texts take the shape of manifestos, scores, poetic essays and prose poems. Many were originally printed as giveaway posters at exhibitions of davis’ visual artwork and/or incorporated into her live performances. Marks from her graphic notation appear throughout the book. Improvisation is both an artistic practice and a critical methodology for davis. She states in the introduction: “I believe improvisation can be harnessed for the radical collective action needed to make the world we want to see.”
