Konkret Media is a left-wing media collective based in Los Angeles. Our political horizons are global—the scope of our problematics, borderless—but they are shaped by a distinct vantage point. We are leftists and internationalists; we are also Angelenos.

Our task is to help shape a critique of the present as a vehicle for a different, liberatory politics. We will do our best to document and interpret the conditions that face us, while honestly evaluating the balance of progressive forces working for a society oriented towards human need.

While our primary work is to produce commentary, we understand the necessity to go beyond mere appraisal and criticism. The material we publish is meant as an intervention not just in the theoretical concerns of the Left but also its organization and strategy. We seek to be embedded in existing sites of struggle, not stand above them.

We believe in the contemporary relevance of historical materialism and its potential to resonate with the working class. We insist that fundamental social change can only come through the development of a working-class movement able to contest all terrains of social, economic and political life. This is the framework not just of our critique of 21st century capitalism, but also our articulation of strategies for its supersession.
