On Edited Friday!
On five Friday evenings in February and March, OEI presents the ideas and opinions of a number of experiment-oriented publishing houses, journals, publishing initiatives, artists, researchers, philosophers and poets. This series is held in conjunction with the publication of #79 of OEI magazine. Based on their individual perspectives and practices, the invited guests will highlight and discuss editorial strategies, and the critical potential, innovative forms and productive communities of publishing. Edited Friday! showcases an ecology of artistic publishing alternatives in Denmark, Sweden, Portugal and France, listening in on some contemporary initiatives that re-energise editing, publishing and distribution. The programme also digs deep into the history of alternative publishing, including Ernesto de Sousa’s genre-transgressing work as a critic, artist, film-maker and curator in Portugal throughout the 1960s-, 70s and 80s, and the Swedish arts magazine Vargen (The Wolf, 1974–75) with its idiosyncratic blend of dada, pop and anarchism.
