Collaborative Futures, 2nd Edition Book Launch
Join us for a toast to launch the second edition of Collaborate Futures on Wednesday, September 23, 6-8PM. The book launch runs in conjunction with the opening reception of Eyebeam’s Window Gallery exhibition, Patrons, Muses and Professionals.
Collaborative Futures was initially created by 6 core collaborators, as an experimental five day Book Sprint in January 2010. Developed under the aegis of transmediale.10, this third publication in the festival’s parcours series resulted in the initiation of a new vocabulary on the forms, media and goals of collaborative practice. In June 2010, the book was rewritten as a part of the Re:Group exhibition at Eyebeam. This second edition invited three new collaborators to challenge the free culture sentiment underlying the original writing. The result is a deliberately multi-voiced tone pondering the merits and shortcomings of this new emerging ideology. Discounted copies will be available for purchase, fresh from the printer.
