Dear friends and Rizosfera community,
in response to rapidly evolving Covid-19-related concerns and following the last government health policy and containment measures, we are no longer able to meet the deadlines of our publications.
As you know, our organisation is located in Reggio Emilia, in the centre of the region called Emilia Romagna, the second most affected county by the epidemic in Italy. We have been hardly hit by a high number of victims and of coronavirus cases.
The handicraft activities we cooperate with and rely on to produce our records, books, USB, SD cards, video albums, etc. are closed. For this reason, we have decided to postpone all our scheduled releases to the 1st of May hoping that this period of time and rest will be useful to mitigate the current difficult conditions.
In particular, we refer to:
- Obsolete Capitalism / Mark Stewart (English version) :: Chaos Variation IV :: Vinyl EP + booklet // originally scheduled for March 20, now delayed to June 1;
- Obsolete Capitalism / Zafer Aragacok / SIFIR (English version) :: Chaos Variation VII :: EP Vinyl + booklet // originally scheduled for April 6, now delayed to July 2020;
- Elsoyame :: LightroniX :: video album Usb Card 4GB + booklet // originally scheduled for March 24, now delayed to June 15;
- Obsolete Capitalism and Stefano Oliva (editors) :: LD10 / La Deleuziana n. 10 :: Chaos, rhythm and unpulsed man :: Printed book + Usb Card 8GB // originally scheduled for March 20, now delayed to June 2020.
Further works scheduled for 2020 (Samora / The Anti-Group / TAGC / NicoNote and Wang Inc / Obsolete Capitalism and Achim Szepanski / Ezili-i Sabbah / Mille Plateaux) will be re-scheduled in due time.
Rizosfera is a self-funded non-profit art organisation that relies only on our finance and our audience for every single publication. Therefore we have decided to set up a page on our website rizosfera.net for donations to keep alive our projects which are based on art, theory, and philosophy. We will link the donation to your purchase of single or multiple products which will be shipped as soon as we can start the production of our ‘unidentified sonic objects’ again. We are therefore promoting our next releases in PRE-ORDER, so that donations can be linked to current and future products.
Help us keep our Rizosfera project alive.
Thanks for your support.
