The Militant Image Reader brings together theorists and artists from Europe and North America that speculate on the relationship of artistic representation and social change today.
With contributions by Reinhard Braun, Urban Subjects, Jeff Derksen, Marina Grzinic, Jayce Salloum, T.J. Demos, Sandra Schäfer, Stefan Römer, Paola Yacoub, Michel Lasserre, Jaleh Mansoor.

This publication engages with the militant image rather than seeking to define it. The militant image is as multiple as theories of social change and the conditions that must come together in order for change to happen. The militant image – perhaps ephemeral, elusive, whispering, and circulating at the threshold of invisibility – proposes that a new condition of the image seeks to respond to the radically uneven conditions of the present, yet the militant image always aims for future.
