This publication features work from the interdisciplinary festival Extravagant Bodies _ Extravagant Minds, which started off in Zagreb in October 2010, exploring notions of the politics of normality with a focus on mental illness and intellectual disabilities.

Featuring: Bobby Baker, Dada Jihad, Amela Frankl, Adi Hasanbasic, David Hoyle, House of Extreme Music Theater, Paul Murray, Kim Noble and many more.
