Testcard F: Television, Mythinformation, and Social Control


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Testcard F is a graphic demolition derby through the farmed and show-shocked society, a society whose sell-by date has long since expired. Using savage image/text cut and paste this controversial book explodes all previous media theories and riots through the Global Village, looting the ideological supermarkets of all its products : anti fascism, Malcolm X, James Bulger, the Gulf War, Satanic Abuse, Somalia, and Eastern Europe.

Testcard F joyrides in front of the surveillance cameras, amidst the rubble of a junkyard nation, and heaves television's burnt-out carcass through the plate glass shop front of 'independent' video and 'community access' broadcasting.

Testcard F transcends postmodern and situationist analysis in its positive refusal of the concept of Truth. Notions of currency, topicality, the 'informed citizen' and the Cult of the Information Age itself are all hauled from their pedestals and their pieces recycled to build the relations of a new society.

Testcard F has no named authors; it originates in the pirate transmissions of the unruly squatters of cyberspace when scheduled programming closes down for the night.
