Otherwise known as .../CC01, the first edition of CC (Carbon Copy) invites artists who use writing in their artistic practise to become part of our network and share their texts with the audience (and each other). This open call would like to explore how different distribution methods and engagements can influence an offline circulation of content by establishing a new scribal network. Within the network, texts will circulate freely and readers/writers can modify, adapt, appropriate, comment, etc...
./CC01 (Carbon Copy) was inspired by samizdat, an underground self-publishing network that originated in Soviet Eastern European countries. Living in a climate where publications were heavily censored by the government, people started forming an underground network through which they could freely distribute text & image, appropriately naming it SAM (Russian; “self, oneself”) IZDAT (Russian; “publishing house”). Because of limited access to photocopying machines and other equipment, readers had to resort to copying the literature by hand, often editing and appropriating it along the way, and passing their copy on to the next reader so it could be copied again. This way, the movement blurred the traditional role of the author, reader, editor, publisher and bookseller. In today’s literary climate we still see a very traditional take on these roles in the offline world, but online there is a similar shift happening: once published on the worldwide web content can be easily copied, modified, and circulated in ways beyond our control.
The writers should not feel limited in their writings, all kinds of text are accepted: poetry, literature, illustrated text, etc...
During the exhibition in June, all the contributing text will be shown and audiences will be invited to ‘copy’ the text in a method they deem fit. All copies created during the exhibition will be added to the show. The event will be hosted by Tique art space on 6 June 2019.
