VLAK is an enormous journal that acts as an international curatorial project with a broad focus on contemporary poetics, art, film, philosophy, music, science, design, politics, performance, ecology, and new media. Its global-local environment is defined by intersections, hybrids, transversals: realities that are contested, interactual and always in the process of taking new forms. It stands for the drive to experiment, to synthesise, to extend - holding to the principle that a vital culture is always experimental and thus always "at a crossroads."

Issue 4 of VLAK, a 440-page volume edited by Louis Armand, David Vichnar, Edmund Berrigan, Ali Alizadeh, Steven J. Fowler, Jane Lewty, Stephen Mooney, Olga Pekova, Jeroen Nieuwland and Ewelina Chiu, was published last month. It features some fantastic work from a vast array of international artists and writers including Vanessa Place, Alice Notley, John Kinsella, Sean Bonney, Steve Dalachinsky, Philip Terry, Emily Critchley, Harry Gilonis, Ondřej Buddeus, Jennifer K Dick and many more.

It also features my poem 'Dream with Jeff Koons and La Cicciolina'.

VLAK 4 is well worth a space in your library. It's available for €8.00 plus postage from Litteraria Pragensia (Prague, London, New York, Melbourne, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam).
