publishing soon: Abraham T. Zere’s Anecdotes of Indefinite Anarchy

Forthcoming this month through the Green Violin is Anecdotes of Indefinite Anarchy by Abraham T. Zere. In the texts compiled in Anecdotes of Indefinite Anarchy, Abraham T. Zere writes about Eritrea, one of the most silent countries in the world. When Zere wrote between 2016 and 2017, Eritrea was listed at the bottom of the list for worst country in the world for freedom of press by Reporters Without Borders. Today, little has changed, as it continues to sit at 179 out of 180, just above North Korea in the 2017 review. Since President Isaias Afwerki came to power in 1993, the Eritrean regime under the rule of the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice maintains a strict control over political criticism, artistic output and freedom of expression.

Also, Nathan Medema’s a ticking does not absolve the bomb is now available online as a PDF, on its publication page. A few copies have been made available at H. de Heutz shows in Montréal and Ottawa, with forthcoming shows in Québec City and Montréal.
