We Are Publication’s latest project, We.Are.Cut.Up. emanates from the group’s recent manifesto and expands on central preoccupations around cut-up, fragmentation and modes of collective re-composition and re-assemblage. We.Are.Cut.Up. consists of a soundscape and a series of posters, both specifically conceived for the Dekalb Gallery at Pratt Institute, New York.

We Are Publication

Kingston’s Contemporary Art Research Centre presents an evening a series of events with publishing as it’s focus on and around publishing.

It’s hubris, hu… bris. We know about the dangers. That you might think it meaningless. That if nothing much happens you will give it up. And that if his magic trick doesn’t quite work you will feel shortchanged. She says people shouldn’t take these things for granted. She says it can exist just as well this way. We insist on serving up the scraps. We insist on second thoughts. Then we can stop and think of the other things – the emperor, the ink, the blindfold. Because it’s not supposed to end properly.
