"With the disappearance of a "mainstream" & therefore of an "avant-garde" in the arts, it has been noticed that all the more advanced & intense art-experiences have been recuperable almost instantly by the media, & thus are rendered into trash like all other trash in the ghostly world of commodities. "Trash," as the term was redefined in, let's say, Baltimore in the 1970s, can be good fun--as an ironic take on a sort of inadvertent folkultur that surrounds & pervades the more unconscious regions of "popular" sensibility--which in turn is produced in part by the Spectacle."--"Immediatism"

Immediatism (1994) is a collection of essays by Peter Lamborn Wilson which explains his particular conception of anarchism and anarchy which he calls "ontological anarchy".

In the same compilation he deals with his view of the relationships of individuals with the exterior world as perceived by the senses and a theory of liberation which he calls "immediatism".

It was originally published by AK Press and then by Autonomedia.

"Immediatism" is a also a track on T.A.Z. (1994).
