Tan Lin @ Motto Berlin. 19.02.2013
Talk 8pm (sharp)

The Powerpoint of Reading and other videos.

Tan Lin will be reading and screening selections from a number of videos and Powerpoint video works, including Bibliographic Sound Track, the Ph.D Sound, Dub Version, and Eleven Minute Painting. The various videos explore communications platforms such as Twitter, SMS, status updates, IM chats, programming languages, video game walk-throughs, the couplet, and the Powerpoint slide, as they affect reading, attention spans, and genre. The screening event performs an audience’s reading in an environment that has absorbed everything next to it in the room – from bibliographies to the smell of wet spanghum peat moss, the perfume Wet London Pavement, Glade Everglade Air Freshener and the music of New Order and Lucky Dragons.

Tan Lin is the author of over ten books, most recently, of Heath Course Pak, Bib. Rev. Ed, Insominia and the Aunt., and 7 Controlled Vocabularies and Obituary 2004 The Joy of Cooking. He is the recipient of a 2012 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant, a Getty Distinguished Scholar Grant and a Warhol Foundation/Creative Capital Arts Writing Grant to complete a book on the writings of Andy Warhol. He is working on a sampled novel, Our Feelings Were Made By Hand. He is an Associate Professor of English and Creative Writing at New Jersey City University.

Das Beiwerk

Nik Thoenen, Lorenzo le kou Meyr

”The book is object-like, white, reduced to its body, as if torn from 
its cover and apparently relieved of its content. The content remains 
imaginary, it is gleaned only through the remaining footnotes. It is 
these marginal notes that open the space for interpretation, incidental meanings, that act and tempt.” NT

German, paperback, open-thread stitching, 96 p., 148 x 210 mm, 300 ex.

Das Beiwerk
Nik Thoenen, Lorenzo le kou Meyr

“Das Buch ist objekthaft, weiss, auf seinen Buchkörper reduziert, als ob es dem Umschlag entrissen worden wäre und scheinbar dem Inhalt enthoben. Der Inhalt bleibt gedacht, er markiert sich bloss durch die übriggebliebenen Fussnoten. Es sind diese Randbemerkungen, welche den Raum zur Interpretation öffnen, Nebensächlichkeiten, die agieren und verleiten.”

Deutsch, Taschenbuch, offene Fadenbindung, 96 S., 148 x 210 mm, 300 Ex.
