New! Against Competition by Marc Fischer ($5.00)
Temporary Services has been on a publishing rampage lately. We recently reprinted Marc Fischer’s 2006 essay Against Competition as its own booklet with illustrations by Kione Kochi and a new Afterword.The essay takes on the pervasive and corrosive problem of competition that exists and is created between artists by a market-driven art system. The essay also explores productive collaborative models in art, as well as in underground music subcultures whose approaches to generosity and working together might be something for artists to learn from. The Afterword follows up on some of the stories and examples from the original essay, and looks at the impact of social media on all of these concerns and how things have changed in the nearly 8 years since this text was first written. It also mentions the creation of Half Letter Press and the founding of Fischer’s initiative Public Collectors.
The booklet was made on a Risograph EZ 390 with three colors on green and white paper. Copies are available for purchase here. We also made an epub and a PDF version.
