The Link Art Center and Abandon Normal Devices (AND) invite artists to submit proposals for the ongoing book series “In My Computer”, published by Link Editions. Started in 2011 by the Link Art Center, the series featured so far 8 artist books, and 3 more are scheduled for fall 2015 – Spring 2016. In My Computer # 12, however, will be peculiar: the Link Art Center and AND joined forces in order to select and commission a project that will be made public in two steps: first as an online project, and later as a publication. The organizers will support the production of the selected proposal with 900 € towards fees and production costs.
One’s computer is a repository of valuable things that, for some reason, never went public: projects, drafts, short notes, private emails, unreleased interviews, unpublished texts, tales, poems, quotes, image or spam email collections, whatever. If you think this content may be relevant or interesting also for a wider audience; if you think it may work well in book form, circulated digitally or printed on paper; the book series “In My Computer” may be the right jar for your jam.
“In My Computer” is a series of books collecting unpublished material available in your computer, produced by LINK Editions and circulated both in digital and printed form through the print-on-demand (POD) service Lulu.com. The book can take any shape compatible with POD’s production and distribution standards.
