Hoscotch Reading Room

6 January 2018
On Saturday 6 Jan Other Forms will host a discussion at the Hopscotch Reading Room in Berlin (Kurfurstenstrasse 14), joined by designer and writer Cornelia Durka. In the context of a discussion about the political aspirations and contexts of independent publishing, Cornelia will present her recent research into the Handbuch der Raubdrucke. In 1973, the lawyer and private collector of pirated editions, Albrecht Götz von Olenhusen, published, together with Christa Gnirß, this comprehensive bibliography which documents the publishing praxis of the German-speaking New Left during four years (1968-1971). Cornelia will discuss how these “socialized prints and proletarian reprints“ clashed with copyright law, challenged library science, and exposed even progressive writers as loyal to the bourgeois conception of intellectual property.

What is the program behind a magazine called Counter-Signals, which tracks like-minded forms of militant publishing — incomplete and contradictory — in all their historical and technical mediation, and reflexively elicits its own formal and editorial mutations, abridgments, and excursions in the present?

At Evening Class, Other Forms will be joined in discussion by Nicholas Thoburn, author of Anti-Book: On the Art and Politics of Radical Publishing (University of Minnesota Press, 2016). Presenting what he terms “a communism of textual matter,” Nicholas explores the encounter between political thought and experimental writing and publishing, shifting the politics of text from an exclusive concern with content and meaning to the media forms and social relations by which text is produced and consumed.
