Performative Publications

Now live: the performative project Janneke Adema has put together to create an alternative take on, and artist’s book out of, ‘The Political Nature of the Book: On Artists’ Books and Radical Open Access’. This is an article Janneke and I wrote together, the original version of which was published in New Formations last year.

The project is part of a larger programme of research on performative publications Janneke is carrying out. It is available at http://disruptivemedia.org.uk/thepoliticalnatureofthebook/index1.html and consists of a website and accompanying posters, which have both been designed by Coventry University 2nd year design students Nabaa Baqir, Mila Spasova and Serhan Curti.

Information about the different multimedial ways of engaging with the text both online and offline, together with some of Janneke's thoughts on the concept of performative publications, and reflections on how this particular project was conceived and developed, are available on her Open Reflections blog as well as that of the Centre for Disruptive Media.
