The Beginners Guide to Consent is a zine on consent, consensus and collaboration. Text (max 150 words) & image submissions are welcomed in response to these questions or related topics:

  • What is missing from current definitions of consent?
  • How can agreement be produced or engineered? What about doubt?
  • How does sexual consent relate to democratic decision-making?
  • Beyond "yes means yes": what would a radical theory of consent look like?

Deadline: 17 June 2013.

Submissions will be exhibited at News From Nowhere at V2 Institute for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam during July 2013. They will be democratically edited into a series of print editions during workshops at the exhibition, and published online. The Beginners Guide to Consent is part of the research project Consentsus, and refers to the attempt to 'go back to the beginning' and explore the basics of consent from a radical perspective.

Found texts & images not created by you are very welcome, as are extracts from longer works.
