Titel: The Bottled Wasp Pocket Diary 2014
The Bottled Wasp Pocket Diary is a not-for-profit project designed to raise funds for prisoner support activities and to help publicise the work of groups working on the myriad of issues surrounding the politics of imprisonment. This stylish new radical European counterpart to the U.S.-centric Slingshot Diary focuses on a new area of radical politics and history each year: the 2013 Bottled Wasp featured an introduction to prisoner support and general prison-related history and issues; and the 2014 edition covers the history of radical arts and artists, focusing on the importance of anarchist and libertarian thought on the Arts, revealing its lesser known and hidden histories in the areas of the plastics arts, music, literature, photography, film, dance, etc. Thus, the 2014 Bottled Wasp contains short introductions on Anarchist detective fiction, science fiction, Berlin Dada, Russian Anarcho-Futurism and its Italian counterpart, the Czech and Japanese artistic anarchist avant gardes, Néo-Impressionism, Octave Mirbeau, Nancy Cunard and the anarchist magician Mystag. We also reveal the hidden libertarian connections of Franz Kafka, August Strindberg, Georges Simenon, Mark Rothko, Hans Richter, Luigi Russolo, Pablo Neruda, Marcel Duchamp, John Cowper Powys, Lawrence Durrell, Lucien Pissarro, Albert Camus and many more. The cover of the 2013 Bottled Wasp featured artwork courtesy of Clifford Harper, and for the cover art for next year’s diary we have a cover designed by the well-known London street artist Stikman. The diary itself is also lavishly illustrated with numerous vignette illustrations of the artists (and their works) that we are featuring this year.?
