How to Survive the Paper Industry
Participants: Simon Worthington (Mute, London), Alessandro Ludovico (Neural, Bari)Moderator: Nat Muller (Rotterdam)

Ever since ink turned into toner and pixel, printed paper has been struggling to survive as a medium. Yet, stubborn independent editors are still producing the most endangered species of paper products: the independent magazine. By endlessly reinventing content, technical and economical strategies these magazines testimony to the distinct qualities of printed publications, such as periodicity, touch of paper and smell of copy. Yet, it is precisely the love for the speed of electrons, and an understanding of the potentials of networked media, that have inspired the cultural tactics of these magazines; from print-on-demand, collaborative editing, sharing content and knowledge, to surfing and playing up to new economical demands.

Lunch Lecture
Processual Aesthetics, Processual Editing: Net-Working
Participants: Miren Eraso (Zehar, San Sebastian), Christina MCPhee(-empyre-, Sydney), Patricia Canetti (Canal Contemporâneo, São Paulo/Rio de Janeiro)

Cultural networking has been embodied in different forms through the various nets of independent publishers. We will focus on the aesthetics and practices of networking, collaborative editing and publishing and how that all ties into what has been called “processual aesthetics”, namely an aesthetics that recognizes the material and embodied dimensions of netculture. Strategies of connecting, sharing, improve altogether, meeting on shared goals and then terminating collaborations to start new ones as temporary autonomous zones of production and development. So how do editors really work on the net, and where is the locus of pixel and where is the locus of paper?

Lunch Lecture
Publishing the Public: Contextualising Locality

Participants: Jaime Iregui (Esfera Pública, Bogotá), Fran Ilich (Sab0t, Mexico City), José-Carlos Mariátegui (Lima/London), Nebojsa Vilic (Concrete Reflection, Skopje)
Moderator: Nat Muller (Rotterdam)

In a time when the public sphere is shrinking and “things public” become convoluted with “things privat(ised)”, we would like to approach writing and publishing as a public act. Like curating, we would like to view publishing as an effort towards making this public, and in the service of various publics. What is public is of course shaped and moulded by the specificities of context. In a global era we insist to ask how we can work from a particular locality, and go beyond the standard (and by now tedious) “local vs. global” debate, but head to another (yet unknown
