Lumpen is a long running media project based out of Chicago and is the sister project to Select Media.

Select is an experimental critical arts project that explores the emerging aesthetics, technologies, and politics of the emerging counter cultures and contemporary arts. Select investigates threads of practices and trajectories by innovators within creative resistance milieus and the arts. Our projects explore their roles, impacts and meanings in various formats and presentations. We distribute representation and extensions of these projects via our micromedia efforts, CDs, magazines, DVDS, festivals, artifacts and events.
