On January the 30th, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, I’m gonna help André Castro holding a speed workshop on Spam Publishing. Be there!
From the description of the workshop:
“Spam is a peculiar kind of (para)literature. Although it is not intended to be art, it employs artistic strategies in order to succeed in extorting money or collecting information from its recipients. Like other genres of literature, spam possesses its own rules and recurring elements, such as narrative structure, characters and tone. These persistent elements give spam a distinct character and make it easily identifiable, but also serve as insights into our contemporary global culture. By performing a print remediation of spam, we hope to highlight some of its distinguishable aspects.”
