Turbulence have produced a German-language ‘financial crisis special’, featuring the two articles addressing the issue in Turbulence 4. Both pieces, by David Harvie and Christian Frings, are available in English (Harvie, Frings) and German (Harvie, Frings) online here. The flyer can also be downloaded as a PDF.

Copies will be available at the Interventionist Left’s mini-conference on the crisis in Frankfurt Main on January 25 2009. Further copies can be ordered (for a small donation to help cover costs) via the usual email address: email@example.com

Turbulence have been invited to contribute new and old(er) issues of the magazine to the Serpantine Gallery’s ‘Manifesto Marathon’ this weekend (18-19 October, 2008). The Marathon is an attempt to showcase new artists’ work, alongside practitioners from the worlds of literature, design, science, philosophy, music and film returning to the historical notion of the manifesto.
Tickets for the event are available from Ticket Web: 08700 600 100 www.ticketweb.co.uk or from the Gallery lobby desk.

Between 17 and 21 September, 2008, the Fifth European Social Forum (ESF) was held in Malmoe, Sweden. Turbulence were present, and thousands of copies of the new magazine were distributed. Many thanks to everyone who helped handing out copies, and to those of you who filled up your backpacks carrying bundles back to various corners of the world!
As with other events that we’ve tried to intervene into, like last year’s G8 Summit protests and this year’s climate camps in the UK and Germany, we’ve tried to gather together some scraps of analysis and texts, photos, videos and more which we think might help document and increase our understanding of these events and the roles they fulfil.
You can find an initial collection of pieces about this year’s Social Forum, along with some background information on our website here.
If you’ve written something about the Forum, or have videos or photos you think it would be useful to share, send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll consider posting them online.
