By Grant Watson
Communism is routinely defined as defeated and its conquest the subject of regular celebration. Caught in the disappointment and negative connotations of the past, it has become all but unthinkable. Make Everything New seeks to rescue the idea of Communism from this trap. Collaborating with artists, writers and collectives, this project has commissioned and collected counter-narratives, abstract and unrealistic ideas, engaged political commentary and satirical work, that presents neither an historical or comprehensive overview nor a requiem for the past. It is a collection of partial and subjective accounts of various creative practices, an experimental platform for ideas and an attempt to see in what ways the communist imagination can be materialised as art. Contributors include: Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri of 16Beaver and Martha Rosler, Gopal Balakrishnan, Michael Blum, AA Brosnan and Dont Rhine, Maria Eichhorn, Factotum, Aleksandra Mir and Jim Fitzpatrick, Dmitry Gutov, Sarah Pierce/The Metropolitan Complex, CK Rajan, Raqs Media Collective, Rob Stone, Alberto Toscano, Grant Watson, Klaus Weber, and Wu Mng.
