A special issue celebrating the 10th anniversary of Inventory. Included are found texts on diverse subjects such as relational aesthetics, Ernst Junger, Western Europe as viewed by the East, and urban Rorschach tests.
Inventory, whose work has continually exposed the inadequacies of post-critical attempts at sloppy summation and weak dismissal, has consequently been pathetically sketched as ‘provocative’, ‘post-situationist’ and ‘didactic’. Such bleating is one reason, among many, that necessitates the persistency of a publication that makes no claims to be anything other than what is printed on its pages. It is a publication that makes severe demands on itself and expects nothing less from its readers and its critics. Text source: http://www.cornerhouse.org/bookstore/product/inventory-2.
