Emily Kai Bock’s Spit Gold Under an Empire — a (preview of her) documentary on NYC’s Rap Underground.
Xavier Antin is interested in the history of the production (and the reproduction) of objects, when it involves a glitch, or an accident. He always creates a production process in which accidents occur, like clues of a narrative underlying the work process. Sometimes he takes the chain of production backwards, like in one of his most recent projects entitled Five Conversations. In conversations with the production managers of highly specialised companies, he dismantled processes leading to the production of objects such as chairs or billiard tables. He supervised the production of ersatz pieces, cubes that synthesize all the intrinsic qualities of the objects, though devoid of any functionality, extended to abstraction: a conversational cube. As if he were attempting to operate a deflection of the industrial production tool.

Of course the book can be downloaded for free — the PDF link is on the webpage.
