Experimental Publishing Festival: window.open()

We are pleased to invite you to window.open(), a day-long festival, held by students and alumni of the Master of Experimental Publishing (XPUB), Piet Zwart Institute at Page Not Found. 

A window is a framing device, an interface through which we can look inside, to spaces where small groups meet, and outside to the world beyond. Screens and windows delineate boundaries between public and private. We adjust, in order to be able to communicate within a temporary window of time, reframing our intentions and seeking opportunities to share some real-time realness.

window.open() at PNF will be an interface for the XPUB program to communicate with the public inside and outside of the physical space. We adjust, using windows in the street and in the browser in order to be able to communicate. Through this dialogical interface attitudes, perspectives, backgrounds and situations are explored together in a program consisting of presentations, workshops, publication launches, conversations and performances which take place both online and offline.
