An Antagonist’s Guide To the Assholes Of Los Angeles traces a history, theory, and sites for creative agonistic social and political practice in LA. The guide annotates over 80 places; banks, businesses, politicians and polluters, war contractors, institutions, a troll, a yeller, and a cruel mis-dial. The list was sourced through an open public call and research. The guide frames for its users sites worthy of creative exploration throughout Los Angeles. We hope your practice benefits from it.

The guide also includes short essays framing antagonism within Los Angeles’ social and cultural history; contributions by The Llano Del Rio Collective, Marisa Jahn, Lisa Anne Auerbach, Laura Pullido, and Jennifer Flores Sternad.

The guide is available for free to all residents of LA County. Guides may be found at designated locations, or may be requested (by county residents) by post by contacting while they last.
