NOISE AFTER BABEL: LANUAGE UNRESTRAINED. Ed. by Sezgin Boynik and Minna Henriksson. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 352 pp. 17 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783959050449 In English.
Publisher's description: An interdisciplinary project involving visual artists, theoreticians and linguists, Noise After Babel is published in conjunction with the eponymous exhibition at Gallery Oksasenkatu in Helsinki, Finland. Combining artistic and theoretical research, the project examines language as a potential ground for political engagement. Coupling the words "Babel" and "noise" suggests that after an intervention, a linguistic term originally with only one meaning (babel), is replaced by an unwanted and unbearable situation (noise). Authored by Helsinki-based social scientist Sezgin Boynik (b. 1977) and Helsinki-based artist Minna Henriksson (b. 1976), the publication includes contributions by Antti "Eze" Eskelinen, Alpo Jaakola, Rastko Mocnik, Eetu Viren, and Milena Solomun plus interviews with researchers Liban Ali Hersi, Minna Hjort, Ulla Horstia, Salli Kankaanpää, Mika Lähteenmäki, Lauri Siisiäinen and Klaas Ruppel. Boynik and Henriksson are known for their co-publishing on punk culture, the relationship between aesthetics and politics, cultural nationalism, the Situationist International and Yugoslavian cinema.
