“Orange Shirt Day – Every Child Matters is observed on September 30, to reflect on the time of year when — for over 100 years — aboriginal children were removed from their homes and their families and sent to residential schools. This year, Concordia students, faculty members and staff will be wearing orange T-shirts in recognition of residential school survivors.” Hilary Rose

Ce que l’humanité a désormais en commun,c’est le fait que nous sommes appelés à vivre exposés les uns aux autres, et non enfermés dans des frontières, des cultures et des identités.” Achille Mbembe

Contemporary technological methods of  deploying information no longer afford  an absolute hiding from reality. (1) That is, at least for a large sector of the population.  Of course “some boys will always be boys” (and continue to live in the crumbling mirage of privileged denial). For many who choose to look beyond the mere mirage, there is an inkling that those who refuse to face the consistent strange mix of beauty and miscreance of our  contemporary world can no longer sustain their denial for much longer.  There will always be those who will continue to play the denial  game and those who see no other option than entering behind or in front -into reality’s matrix. This matrix as both a lair of subterranean beauty and catatonic paradise is all about Immediacy raring its visceral head. A mix of honey and wax, a mix of velvet and furs, some might say.The shifts in this present tense are sudden- the orange glow of reality grows brighter and brighter – it either warm or repels, or both at once.

War in the Neighbourhood is a 1999 Graphic novel by Seth Tobocman that details the artist experience in the lower east-side of New York city in the late 1980s. It’s a legendary tale of squats, cops, and raucous riots.

Today, Ad Astra Comix is hoping to republish this influential graphic novel that touched on various topics still very relevant today.
