Panel: Piracy, Copyright, and Books, at Printed Matter
I’m on a couple of upcoming panels at Printed Matter, Inc. The first one’s on piracy, books, and of course, copyright, and takes place on Friday, August 17th, from 6-8pm. Hope to see some of you there.
Here’s the blurb.
As part of the Help/less exhibition currently on view, The Piracy Project (Andrea Francke & AND Publishing) will host a panel discussion and book pirating session on August 17th, 6-8, and Saturday August 18th, 3-7PM, respectively.
In a public presentation/discussion, Andrea Francke and Eva Marie Weinmayr will introduce The Piracy Project. Panelists Joanne McNeil (Rhizome), Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento (Clancco) and David Senior (MoMA Library) and will present a selection of books from the exhibition that they would like to see inducted into the Piracy Project library, negotiating concepts of originality, copying, and taste as they defend their selections. At the end of the conversation, 3 books will be chosen as the winners.
On the following day, Saturday, August 18th, Eva and Andrea will make copies of the winning books to bring back to London to add to their collection. Anyone who would like to help us in the process of making the books is invited to join and find out more about the project.
