"After a four-year sabbatical, beloved revolutionary sweetheart Arthur returns to print, renewed, refreshed, reinvigorated and in a bold new format: pages as big as a daily newspaper, printed in color and black and white on compostable newsprint, with ads only on the back cover(s). In partnership with Portland, Oregons Floating World Comics, Arthurs gang of idiots, know-it-alls and village explainers are back, from Bull Tonguers Byron Coley & Thurston Moore to radical ecologist Nance Klehm to trickster activists from the Center for Tactical Magic to gonzoid political commentator Dave Reeves to a host of new, fresh-faced troublemakers. We wont spoil it by telling you everything thats in this comeback issue, but, well theres this: the late guitarist Jack Rose is tributed, via photographs, a new discography by Byron Coley, and the definitive interview he gave just months before his 2008 death to Philadelphia journalist Brian Rademaekers; Stewart Voegtlin goes long on Waylon Jennings; Eliza Swann converses with occult pan-media artist Frank Haines; cartoonist Gabby Schulz gives us some brutal reality; the suitable-for-posterizing cover is by Roarin Rick Veitch; and? Well, lets stop there. Heres the last thing you need to know: Its 2012: Arthur is no longer distributed for free anywhere. You gotta buy it or you wont see it." Broadsheet newspaper, 15" x 22.75". - Arthur.

"The screams the unchained soarings of a sincerity which is on its way to this revolution of the whole body without which nothing can be changed." -- Antonin Artaud. "Arthur Magazine proudly presents our newest release Paradise Now: The Living Theatre in Amerika DVD featuring rare, never-before-distributed films and a bacchanal of revolutionary multimedia documents from The Living Theatres historic and influential 68-69 American tour. A fulminating art-meets-life installation brought to you in collaboration with The Living Theatre, The Ira Cohen Akashic Project and Saturnalia Media Rites of the Dreamweapon. Transform your living, work or performance space... hit play, but dont say we didnt warn you! DVD includes: Paradise Now: The Living Theatre in Amerika (1969) a film by Marty Topp, produced by Ira Cohen for Universal Mutant; Emergency (1968) a film by Gwen Brown, featuring precious footage of Living Theatre productions Mysteries and smaller pieces, Paradise Now, and Frankenstein; rare photographs of Paradise Now at Brooklyn Academy of Music by Don Snyder; the map of Paradise Now, a 14 x 19 double-sided, commemorative poster + zine including texts by Antonin Artaud, Julian Beck, Judith Malina, Ira Cohen and Don Snyder. In 1968, The Living Theatre, led by Julian Beck and Judith Malina, triumphantly returned to America from years of self-imposed exile in Europe with their theatrical breakthrough Paradise Now. The play introduces the practice of collective creation, dissolving the boundaries of human interactions and forging a harmony between the actors and audience. Of this process, Julian Beck writes, Collective creation is the secret weapon of the people ... This play is a voyage from the many to the one and from the one to the many. Its a spiritual voyage and a political voyage, a voyage for the actors and the spectators. The play is a vertical ascent toward permanent revolution, leading to revolutionary action here and now. The revolution of which the play speaks is the beautiful, non-violent, anarchist revolution. The purpose of the play is to lead to a state of being in which non-violent revolutionary action is possible. The result of this shared voyage is the spontaneous creation of a temporary anarchist collective -- free from the enslavements of war, violence, the State, money and the self."-Arthur.
