CODE:RED – the book

We are pleased to announce the publication of the new book CODE:RED.
The book includes theoretical essays and previously unpublished documentary material relating to the long-term collaborative art project CODE:RED, which was initiated in 1999/2000 by the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E.Museum of Contemporary Art.
At the same time, the book's publication also serves as an introduction to the retrospective exhibition project Crisis or Expansion of Public/Private Forms of Life: Tadej Pogačar 1990–2011, organized by the Vojvodina Museum of Contemporary Art in Novi Sad, Serbia, which will be on view in Novi Sad from 15 June to 15 July 2011.

The book CODE:RED includes a series of theoretical essays from the fields of gender studies and feminism, the history of the struggle of sex workers, their political actions, their fight for human and social rights, their cultural work, their inclusion in labor syndicates, and so on. The publication pays tribute to the extraordinary individuals who through their courage and boldness have managed to escape the vicious circle of ignorance and stigmatization.

The book also presents essential information about the CODE:RED project – its beginnings, structure, strategies, actions, networks, and collaborations. Also included are visual documents from projects in São Paulo, Venice, Madrid, and New York, as well as three issues of the Sex Worker newspaper. The authors of the essays are Ana Lopes, Pia Covre, Gabriela Silva Leite, Suzana Milevska, Maria do Mar Castro Varela and Nikita Dhawan, Mamen Briz, Mojca Pajnik, and Melissa Ditmore.
The book was edited by Tadej Pogačar, with language editing by Rawley Grau and Jana Wilcoxen and graphic design by Ajdin Bašić. The book has been published in English.

The publication of CODE:RED was made possible by the financial support of the Erste Foundation, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, and the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Ljubljana. The publisher of the book is the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute.

CODE:RED, 236 pages, 17.5 cm x 24.5 cm, semi-hard binding, 240 illus., English edition, ISBN 978-961-6807-03-6, P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute.
