I am currently developing the following projects:
Local Control: Are We All Anarcho-Capitalists Now?
A transmedia documentary (video, radio, publication, exhibition) about the aspiration for self-sufficiency and localism, the Right and Left in the 1960s, anarchism and libertarianism, the evolution of conservatism in the US – all through the lens of the biography of Karl Hess.
