THE ARTS+ Micro-Conference II: Beyond the Cover. Exploring the Future of the Book
Panel Discussion & Presentations
Print is not dead, but most exciting when complemented by, paired or in sync with other (interactive) media and ways of creative expression. This micro-conference brings together pioneers who challenge the frames, formats and conventions of traditional publishing and set a new course for both print and digital by experimenting with hybrid forms and working across disciplines, sectors and materialities. While their projects are artistic explorations off the market, they show that strategy in a digital world does not necessarily mean digital strategy, and inspire not only general reflections on the role, limits and potentials of publishing and the written word, but also business opportunities beyond the book.
