Expanded Publishing Fest
12 January, 19:00-03:00 @OT301, Amsterdam
triple book launch * micro book fair * tactical television * club night
Small publishers, authors, artists, designers, activists, programmers, and researchers around the world have been gathering at the Institute of Network Cultures to experiment with new forms of publishing since 2004. On 12 January, we celebrate 20 years of INC publishing at the Expanded Publishing Fest.
Join us for a triple book launch, micro book fair, live tactical television broadcast, and club night at OT301 in Amsterdam!
📖 Triple Books Launch
At the Expanded Publishing Fest, three new INC publications will be launched:
Screentime Airtime Facetime, our first ever event-as-book, edited by Carolina Pinto and Senka Milutinović. This publication on forms of hybridity in culture is the final result of our research project Going Hybrid.
Semiotics of the End by Allessandro Sbordoni is the first book in our new series Network Notions, a pamphlet-like series that are produced, printed, and distributed entirely in-house by the INC.
De bevrijding van het mecenaat, edited by Sepp Eckenhaussen, is the 49th book in the most prolific INC series Theory on Demand. This book, published in collaboration with Platform Beeldende Kunst, critically examnies the rising power of philanthropists in the Dutch visual arts.
📹 Live Stream Art
The central program of the Expanded Publishing Fest will be broadcast live on The Void, an audiovisual podcast platform for experimental publishing and artistic research started by the INC in 2022. Our friends from UKRAiNATV will be making a stream art contribution to the Expanded Publishing Fest as well.
📚 Micro Book Fair
During the Expanded Publishing Fest, cultural publishers from the INC network will present their publications and have a little book stand. Bring some cash and a big bag!
