Our Crisis Is A Crisis of Aesthetics
Finally, Aesthetico: the much-awaited last issue of the Blueprint for a New World series … a call for an aesthetic awakening, a re-wilding of the capitalist imagination — an adjustment to the mood, the tone, the style and thrust of our lives that has to happen if we’re going to have any kind of a future on this planet.
IdN v21n5: Maximalism – Max it out!
In art, as in sex, size doesn’t matter. There are huge works of minimalism as well as mini-masterpieces of maximalism. Instead of containing the least number of elements, maximalism encompasses the most in a single work. If you are tired of being told that less is more and small is beautiful, try to letting it all hang out and rip up the rules!

In the penultimate issue of our Blueprint for a New World series, we take on the global smörgåsbord of red-alert headlines as the floorboards of the capitalist project give their last protesting creaks.
By unmasking the automaton-equation nibbling at the heart of our society, we look back and reach out beyond the mainstream to find voices of dissent past, present and impending… and remind ourselves that the seeds are already sown and the forecast calls for rain. The smatter of artists, writers, scholars and sights in this issue will reel you away and away – back onto the slow track.

Adbusters #115: Blueprint for a New World Part IV (Techno)
What is reality?
Is your OS up to date? Good. How’s your WiFi connection? Great. Are you reading this hunched over in a cubicle? LOL. Or maybe huddled in a bomb shelter? Uh-oh. Are you ready for Reality 2.0? Yikes. Can’t quite kick your Facebook habit? That’s normal. Or perhaps you’re wondering about the meaning of life now that every human action is monitored, recorded and exploited by the data-industrial complex? Yeah. So are we.

IdN v21n2: Minimalist Issue
Is Less More?
Keeping things simple is never as simple as you think. As we all know from tidying our desks or emptying our closets, the hardest part is deciding what to throw away. Similarly, many rounds of reductions have to be gone through before a minimalist artist is happy with the end-result.
