McKenzie Wark Podcast series: The Artist-Publisher. In conversation with Deluge Books
Publishing too can be a kind of art practice. In The Artist-Publisher podcast series, McKenzie Wark talks to artists who are also publishers and publishers whose work is a kind of art practice. Zines and books, made cheaply or by the thousands, or web-based journals available for free – these seem antithetical to the unique work of art. And yet the creation of meaning around art practices requires this other kind of practice of publishing written works.
Contributors include Julieta Aranda, Jacqueline de Jong, Deluge Books, Hedi El Kholti and GB Jones. The series includes an introduction with Juliette Desorgues.
McKenzie Wark is the author, among other things, of Philosophy for Spiders: on the low theory of Kathy Acker (Duke University Press 2021) and The Beach Beneath the Street: the Everyday Life and Glorious Times of the Situationist International (Verso 2011). She is professor of culture and media at The New School in New York City.
Deluge Books is a new mass experimental queer press. Collapsing the divide between conceptual literary work and bingeable pulp, we make advanced books that are fun to read.
