Speed Factory

Written by Bernard Cohen, John Kinsella, McKenzie Wark, and Terri-ann White


Speed Factory is a many-genred collaborative work about war, AIDS, love, sex, untiring capital, cricket, dancing, toothache, border-crossings, books, writing and erasure. Manufactured speed, speed along wires and airways, speed cooked up in dank kitchens, ballistic speed, speed under gravity. Four of Australia’s most innovative and imaginative writers, Bernard Cohen, John Kinsella, McKenzie Wark and Terri-ann White, in game-playing, sense-making hyperdrive.
