Jena Osman & Alli Warren

Watch video here


Motion Studies and Little Hill, the new books of Jena Osman and Alli Warren, both exist at the precarious intersection of surveillance and escape, power and its holes, in the sexy and frustrated dailiness of resistance. These books ask how to live while indignant and horrified, implicated in that which is struggled against, always accountable to something more than what is known or knowable, to each other.

Featuring a guest introduction by Juliana Spahr


We encourage enthusiastic readers and listeners to engage more deeply with Jena Osman's and Alli Warren's work by purchasing their books. Jena Osman's Motion Studies is available for purchase through Ugly Duckling Presse and Alli Warren's Little Hill can be purchased at City Lights Booksellers & Publishers.
