Publishing

I have been publishing in various media and capacities for as long as I have been writing. Over the past few years, I have been drawn to the possibilities of e-publishing and you can download eBooks I have authored or edited through the links below.

Exhibition catalogues:
No Limit — exhibition e-catalogue for a show I curated of new work by UBERMORGEN at the Kasseler Kunstverein, September 2015. PDF

Workshop Outputs/Book Sprints:
These eBooks are the result of workshop settings or “book sprints”, intense pressure cooker environments for producing new texts. For more information on what a book sprint is, read more here.

Blowup Readers:
Under the aegis of my position as Curator at V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media (2011-2015) I created the organization’s first electronic publications and created the Blowup Readers to complement my series of events and exhibitions entitled Blowup. With this group of eBooks I introduced a strategy of mixing old and new content, actively seeking texts to re-publish or resurrect from archives, as well as commissioning new pieces and writing and conducting interviews myself.
