Publication Intensive

By | Opportunities | No Comments

June 15–26, 2015
Apply online through Monday, April 6 

What: A two-week program in the history and contemporary practice of publication.

Where: The program will take place at Triple Canopy’s venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and will include visits to studios of artists and designers, archives, and cultural institutions.

Who: We invite applications from higher-level college students, graduate students, and recent college graduates. Prospective participants might have backgrounds in areas such as writing, art, literature, art history, new media, and design.

Cost: Tuition is free, though participants must arrange and pay for their travel and accommodation. All reading and viewing materials will be provided free of cost.

During the Publication Intensive, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with participating students, who will research, analyze, and enact an approach to publication that hinges on today’s networked forms of production and circulation but also mines the history of print culture and artistic practice.

The Publication Intensive will address such questions as: How have artists, writers, and designers used the pages of magazines and books as sites of and material for experimentation? How have new-media publications challenged conventions of authorship and reception, only to have those very challenges soon become the foundation of the new economy? How have artists, writers, designers, and technologists responded to ensuing changes in the media landscape? And how have responses differed in areas with disparate resources and relationships to technology? What are the politics of access and identity associated with online public forums and media?

In “A Note on Triple Canopy’s Summer Intensive,” two participants in last year’s program, Maya Harakawa and Dennis Hogan, discuss their experience.
