Tactical In/Visibility and Deterritorialization

The Networked Practices of the Russian-Language Translation and Publishing Cooperative “Radical Theory and Praxis”

In this discussion, Lora Timarova of the translation and publishing cooperative Radical Theory and Praxis talks about how their practices both emerged and developed in relation to the state of the Left – initially founded in and anchored to Moscow, and mainly integrating Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus – to later expanding to create a large translocal network that spans far beyond the region. Consisting of a large number of conscientious objectors to the invasion of Ukraine who fled being drafted or people who fled the war itself or those who fled other forms of oppression, the diaspora and other groups and individuals acting in solidarity support the work of the cooperative. We discuss the importance and remaining popularity of the printed book in times when people search for a sense of unity and collectivity in a landscape of corrupt media and fractured relations.

From their website
“By publishing books about the history of liberation movements, social and environmental initiatives, alternative economic models and political prisoners, we strive to inspire activists to new achievements and push our society towards social change.”
