The new Real Review ponders the idea of 'against from within', a mood and idea which colours all aspects of our contemporary lives. As the editorial states, in a positive sense, 'To be against from within is to identify critical concentrations of power, become experts in their internal logic, then develop methods for inhabiting and altering their operations.'. Inside, austerity Britain is reviewed, power structures dissolved, fame, as an obsession, is tackled and ... the question of why are we all obsessed with houseplants is answered.
Edited by architect Jack Self and innovatively designed by OK-RM, this is an unashamedly intelligent and never less than fascinating read.
