On Thursday and Friday (22-23 May), the international conference “Off the Press: Electronic Publishing in the Arts”, organized by our friends from the Digital Publishing Toolkit initiative, will take place in Rotterdam (NL).
The conference starts at the renowned Museum Bojimans van Beuningen with the sessions “Today’s Book Publishing” and “One thousand and one Publishing Workflows” (both featuring experts from all over the globe), followed by an introduction to the Digital Publishing toolkit and showcases by international artists/designers and publishers.
During the evening session at the legendary WORM, artists and designers will present their own practices and approaches to digital publishing that both take advantage of and question the current modes of content production and dissemination.
The second day begins with three parallel workshops called “Paper to Code: Transforming the Future of Reading”, “Electronic Publishing Workflows: (Multi)Markdown & Pandoc” (you’ll need a separate ticket for these workshops) and “Superglue: Reshaping the Web?” (free). The event is completed by the session “Underground e-publishing” and the “Bazaar”, in which a number of artists, publishers and other practitioners of electronic publishing will showcase their projects in an informal way, looking forward to meeting you!
