Move…ment is the fourth issue of the journal …ment, and is dedicated to protest and language. Contributors were invited to formulate and re-frame the concept of resistance, particularly how it is conceived within their daily experience, resulting in the publication of a plurality of different desires stemming from the same urgencies. These include visual and inventive responses and reprints, as well as a first-hand account of the role of social media in the current protest movements in Spain, fiction that counteracts the populist-neoliberal and pervasive PRI political party in Mexico, and a report of how Internet activists offered their knowledge and technical support to reconnect protestors during the recent Egyptian revolution.
Contributions from: Jan Verwoert, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere, Bassam El Baroni, Rana Hamadeh, Claire Tancons, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz, Federica Bueti, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Kathy Acker, Federico Campagna, Gabriela Jauregui, José M. Bueso and Sally Gutierrez, Christopher Kullenberg and Dick Higgins.

Common Objectives is a series of quick-fire, rapid-response projects from artist/writer collectives or individual art practices engaged with emerging political struggles, rejecting the idea of culture as a playground for the elite, engaging in the potent mix of free discourse, solidarity and the production of new desires and prepared to break open old worlds, either in the virtual space of communication and networks, or in the concrete world of action, discourse and distribution. Other projects in the series include: After The Night by Everyone Agrees; Bad Feelings by Arts Against Cuts; The Counsel of Spent by Inventory; Even the Dead Rise Up by Francis McKee; The Night by Michèle Bernstein, translated by Clodagh Kinsella and edited by Everyone Agrees; Pre-enactments by Victoria Halford and Steve Beard; and Shy Radicals by Hamja Ahsan.
