DARK WEB UNDERGROUND by Satoshi Kizawa

DARK WEB UNDERGROUND, a pioneering publishing on the issue of the "dark web" written in Japanese, will be published in the early 2019.

In this advocating book, author Satoshi Kizawa 木澤 佐登志 who has engaged in literary activities on some web platform addressed to Japan's alternative-pop culture, deeply investigates the hidden internet sites and anonymous actors who appear on the stage called Dark Web, and re-describes the dramas that happened there, while looking back on the ideological background of the internet born from the American West Coast underground. Within his such aggressive framework, the philosophy of "freedom" is linked to reactive not only anarchic counter-culture in past but also dark ideologies that neo-liberal right wing agates or diverse "regressive sexual affects" slipping through the public nets of recovering gender equality or LGBTO rights movement, and so forth. Finally, it will draw out a deviation from the haunted house of the "modern". He hacks/pelts those phantom capitals of desire in the dark side of internet, toward Japanese readers who seek for immediate and speculative gain of the " brightly-ordinary" web of global consumerism, for the first time in Japanese language.
