We’re celebrating two book launches: David Cox’ Sign Wars and Brett Kashmere’s Insight, both on counter-archival practices. Headlining is Clandestine, a wholly appropriated concoction that narrates the riveting tale of the Conet shortwave-radio broadcasts. These spy transmissions seemingly anachronistically use the voices of living human agents to send secret messages around the globe. These “numbers stations” encrypt the most classified intelligence in the form of haunting, repeated cadences of simple numerals. ALSO Damon Packard’s Star Wars Mockumentary, Richard Ankrom’s Guerilla Public Service, and Banksy in B-Movie. Come early for Negativland-flavored artists’ reception, with free toast and jam, and free TV Sheriff DVDs.
