About

I’m Alexander Billet. I’m a writer, cultural critic, and artist. I’ve been a regular contributor to Jacobin, and have also appeared in In These Times, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books, Chicago Review, and other outlets.

For seven years I was a founding and chief editor at the radical arts publication Red Wedge. Currently I’m a member of the Locust Arts & Letters Collective, and serve on the editorial board of Locust Review.

Hollywood, California is where I call home, and I organize with Democratic Socialists of America – Los Angeles’ Agit-Prop committee, heading up the Art & Socialism study group. I am also a member of the East Side Jews Activist Collective.

Some of my art will appear sporadically on this site. More of it can be found on my Instagram.

The mandate categories for this blog will be, generally: Marxism. Surrealism. Post-punk. Psychogeography.
