Technomaterialism & Future Ethics – Miss Read

Technomaterialism & Future Ethics

Technomaterialism is an Afro-diasporic and Black materialist multidisciplinary platform formed by Black writers, musicians and club workers, and focused on providing alternatives to McCarthyism & neoliberal representation optics in dance music. We published our first zine of essays in 2022 and are preparing a second zine for launch at Miss Read in 2023.

Future Ethics is a music label and zine focused on creating community and beauty in dance music. The future we are fighting for is feminist, queer, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, and inclusive of all abilities. Future ethics are embodied in the experimental, the cerebral, the intentional, the radical: sounds and words that break with convention and at times simply break. We have three zines and a music compilation — you can also visit to see more.
