un Projects is excited to launch the next issue of un Magazine, 15.1: SURPLUS, edited by Snack Syndicate (Astrid Lorange + Andrew Brooks).
Due to the Melbourne lockdown we have rescheduled the launch, which will now be held virtually on Wednesday June 9th, from 6.30pm. Please rsvp to [email protected].
We will be hosting physical launches around Australia. More information on launch locations and dates coming soon!
This issue of un Magazine will take surplus as its focus. Surplus value names that which is made when a worker is paid less than they labour. Surplus population names those excluded from the wage relation and managed by often lethal forms of discipline. Surplus is waste, by-product, offshoot, discharge. Surplus is abundance, excess. Surplus points to places where we might disrupt, transcend or complicate expected boundaries or categories; it can be a risk, a vulnerability, a triumph.
