Neomaterialism by Joshua Simon, explores the meaning of the world of commodities and re-introduces various notions of dialectical materialism into the conversation on the subjectivity and vitality of things. Reflecting on general intellect as labor and on the subjugation of an overqualified generation to the neo-feudal order of debt finance, Neomaterialism merges traditions of epic communism with the communism that is already here.

The xeroxing distorts the book cover, echoing the duality between the palpable presence of the object and its mass produced clones.
