Monty Cantsin (ed.): Neoist Book (1984)

6 April 2014, dusan

An early Neoist publication.

“WARNING: THIS BOOK is NEW but it represents OLD ideas. Today we are doing something else and tomorrow we will be entirely different. You can sit down and read this book of OLD ideas, but it would be better if you get up and try to do something NEW. In your place, I would never accept a reactionary situation like this.”
