What cultural and digital strategies could be used to create alternative ways of online publishing, that expand the room for reflection and collectivity? Cultural critical publishing practices require new strategies to respond to the contemporary realities of online media. Manoeuvring between corporate and political powers puts independent publishers in a position that is counterproductive for the role and relevance they ought to have in the social and cultural realm. Creating independent critical content requires plenty of time and effort, and it is not meant to be consumed within seconds. While on the Web 2.0 content is cheap, fast, abundant, and addictive.

PART III – PUBLIC EVENT: PUBLISHING EXPERIMENTS FOR ALL
TUE 25 OCT | 19:00–21:30
What kind of publishing experiments inspire readers to reflect and to exchange ideas with each other? How can experiments be balanced with editorial control to create more space for change within the publishing sector, without losing quality and credibility?
In the third and final event of the three-part series, we invite publishers and visitors to reflect on the perspective of the readers and writers that emerged in the previous workshop sessions. We also invite everyone to share their experiences with new forms of writing and publishing.
New Ways of Reading is developed within The New Social: Hybrid Strategies for Cultural Spaces program as a collaboration between Framer Framed and initiators of Beyond the Essay–Ania Molenda and Andrea Prins. The goal of The New Social is conducting experiments to document and develop strategies that sprung out of necessity during the pandemic. Beyond the Essay is a research project that aims to re-imagine the essay format for new audiences and online media.
