Friction Research Issue #4, 2011
10 May 2011
The Dutch governemental Art Council (Fonds BKVB) let me down, so there will be another couple of months finishing this
I will start with sequentially publishing the received submissions in
reversed chronological order, that is the last received will be
published first.
That will keep the front page weekly chronological article going for
about one year (49 x 7 - ca. 1/2 x 7 = 50/51 = 1)!
I will continue updating Friction Research issue #4 in it's prematurely digital disguise.
In the mean time I ask all our submitters to notify me of any possibility to raise some money for a future printed edition

Reclaiming the idiomatic resources, abused by the Creative Industries ™
and jeopardized by a majority of National Governments © and aiming to
protect these souvereign incomprehensible treasures of mankind by
- occupying the area between 'reality' and 'truth',
- re-using forgotten (collective) memory-spaces,
- connecting mental processes with physical spaces,
and intentionally breaking
seperations between established cultural and political domains by
- rewriting, tearing apart, scratching and stretching our lived
environment in an effort to liberate our ursurpated sensibilities.
