Disobedient Words: A User's Manual is a publication accompanying the performance series Dirty Literature at the
National Portrait Gallery. The publication explores the moment when language threatens (or promises) to become
illegible and brings together writings and newly commissioned contributions by Samuel Dowd, Tim Etchells, Will Holder,
Karl Holmqvist, Tom McCarthy, Francesco Pedraglio, Sue Tompkins and Tony White and a text on language and latency by Fatima Hellberg.
