Solution 247-261Love

 - Solution 247-261
The biopolitical and psychosexual topic of love.
Love is about mixing genes to compete with bacteria and viruses, and to dream together about conquering the cosmos in its various forms. People who do not mix fluids, do not dream, and use hand sanitizer or mouthwash will be extinct. —Alexander Tarakhovsky  

In its ninth volume, the Solution series departs from its previous geopolitical focus on regions and countries. The issue becomes the infinite prospect of connection as well as transformation: this book explores the biopolitical and psychosexual topic of love. With contributions ranging from manifesto to (science) fiction, Solution 247-261: Love realizes that the past, present, and future of love is a demanding mix of charity, sex, trust, lust, economics, genetics, and cybernetics. This volume explores varying ideas of the body, the self, as a spirited micro-region with borders that cannot hold.
