“Wolf André Oleg ‘Andi’ Engel was the kind of man to invent a magazine (Enthusiasm) and a distribution company (Politkino) in order to spread the ideas and cinema of Straub/Huillet. He was also the kind of man to make issue Number 2 of Enthusiasm 30 years after the fact of Number 1. In those intervening 30 years Engel created the distribution company Artificial Eye with his wife Pamela Balfry — one of the most important distributors of world cinema anywhere.” (Source)

“Corona, Fascism, Climate Break-Down. Headlines all, and very real crises felt everywhere– things whose concerns work over situations at every scale of possible experience. We are interested in many things in regard to them, including how their nasty effects demand that we put our home affairs in order. Capacities for solidarity, meaningful mutual aid and actual justice emerge from the most intimate of places – that is, from between people and between people and other meaningful things.
This issue’s aim was to facilitate such work in intimate places; to do so, this issue serves primarily as a compilation of autonomously produced and locally distributed newsletters aimed at situating non-fascist thought and/or avant-garde cultural activity. We begin working on it in late 2018 and are completing it in June 2020.” (from Editorial)
