Out Now! Screentime Airtime Facetime: Practicing Hybridity in the Cultural Field

Screentime Airtime Facetime: Practicing Hybridity in the Cultural Field is the final publication of Going Hybrid, an applied research program on the future of hybridity in the cultural field. How could Covid-triggered innovations in digital cultural programming be turned into durable ways of high-level, participatory livecasting? How do you report on hybrid events? And how do you collect the results in a living and accessible archive? This publication gathers the findings of two years of hands-on experiments, introduces the developed prototypes, and gives insight into the research process.

Because we believe in critical making, this book is itself a hybrid entity. It was originally a live-streamed online event and later turned into a print and a digital publication – each version a little different than what you would expect of a livestream, website, or print book. We encourage you to playfully explore the various versions of Screentime Airtime Facetime and hope that you will gain joy and insight from the form of this book as much as from its contents.
