Fundraiser set up in support of Mark Fisher’s family

Hyperdub, Repeater Books, University of East London and other friends of the late writer and critic have set up a fund in support of his wife and son

A memorial fund has been set up in the the wake of Mark Fisher's death on 13 January. The writer, theorist, critic and teacher also known for his long-running K-Punk blog left behind his wife Zoë and young son George.

“We – Mark’s friends, comrades, and Goldsmiths and Repeater colleagues – have set up this collection to raise money for them,” explains the You Caring site, “in the hope that it will allow them space to grieve and come to terms with their loss, and reduce the number of things they have to deal with at this devastating time.

“There will of course be memorials, events and tributes to Mark to come,” the post continues, “but for now this is the best way people can honour his memory and help his family.”
