Beschreibung des Verlags

Good-bye, rational culture! Let Guatemalan writer Alan Mills welcome you to the philosophy of tricksters. Follow him on a tour through indigenous mythology, classical education, and the literary canon, thoroughly mixed with hacking theory and with popular culture—from Star Wars and Breaking Bad to familiar figures like Bugs Bunny and El Zorro. Get to know Michael Jackson and David Bowie, Guy Fawkes and the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Maya-K’iche’, through this fulminant essay on old and new strategies for resisting superpowers. Mills currently lives in Berlin and Vienna, and Hacking Coyote is an expanded and elaborated version of his 2016 talk at Berlin’s biggest blogger convention, the re:publica TEN. If you don’t yet know that the fox and the coyote can be read as symbols for destructive but simultaneously liberating deeds, if you haven't yet learned to see them as transcultural trickster-hipsters, reading this poetic, associative and witty panorama will open your eyes. Or, in the author's own words: “This open-source codex seeks to unite the contemporary traffickers of information with the smoke signals of their totemic animal.“
Alan Mills was born in Guatemala in 1979 and lives in Berlin and Vienna. In the past ten years, he has lived in Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Paris, Madrid and Leipzig, and has read at poetry festivals throughout Europe and Latin America. He just finished a dissertation on contemporary Latin American literature, in particular indigenist science fiction. He is on Twitter as @alan1000s. https://twitter.com/alan1000s
