I’m a pirate, are you?
Open Mic
Sat 26 Nov 5–6 pm
KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin

We are interested in the methodology of piracy and its significance for contemporary culture.
The word piracy is applied to very different activities ranging from file sharing to attacking freight ships, from the production of counterfeit goods to mixing culture and to political parties.
We, The Piracy Project, are not only interested in your bit-torrent or fake goods, but whether you use the works of others to build your own? Have you been pirated yourself and feel robbed of your intellectual property? Where are the limits in our engagement with culture?

We would like to hear from you. Your input can be a detailed declaration or as short as one sentence. Everyone’s thoughts will be captured.

For the third time MISS READ has invited international publishers and artists to show their books at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. As a genre of its own, the artist book reflects contemporary ways of artistic production and publishing to a great extent and also addresses issues of presentation and circulation as well as new strategies of distribution. Presenting a selection of more than 80 of the most active contributors in this field, the festival provides the opportunity to encounter and explore the contemporary scene of independent publishing.

“If you want to have agency on a democracy, or creativity, you need to be able to be the actor. Therefore you need property rules that allow you to act, therefore you should be cautious of property rules that excludes you from action.”

This book is amazing and Lewis Hyde is even more amazing.

Download the video of the lecture, it’s a great introduction to the book.
