Making hacks into reality. It engages matter in ways that trespass the boundaries between the civic realm and the state-assigned laws. Even with primitive tools and skills, designing and making can break open and repurpose arrangements of power. The proof is that some crafts are so controversial-lock-picking, moonshining, shoplifting, smuggling, sabotage-that they need to be controlled or even outlawed. When designers and makers touch on these contested realms, they run into trouble. This highly original book explores how the material power of design and making can challenge arrangements of agency and domination. Unpacking a series of conflicting cases-from illegal making to the strategic and civic use of crafts to manifest radical alternatives to the current order-it shows how designers and makers can use even basic tools to work towards more.

Recensioner i media

This book will change your understanding of activism, design, and politics, fundamentally. Buy it, steal it, or read it, but most importantly: start redesigning things in your life! -- Stellan Vinthagen, Endowed Chair in the Study of Nonviolent Direct Action and Civil Resistance and Professor of Sociology, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA Making Trouble is a fabulous book. It offers an original and timely intervention in scholarly and activist debates and has the added benefit of being beautifully written. I fully expect it will become an instant classic in cross-disciplinary research and contentious political practice. -- Victoria Hattam, Professor of Politics, New School for Social Research, New York
