XPUB Special Issues

Experimental Publishing (XPUB) is a new study path of the Piet Zwart Institute's Media Design Master programme.

XPUB's interests in publishing are twofold:

first, publishing as the inquiry and participation into the technological frameworks, political context and cultural processes through which things are made public;

and second, publishing as the desire to expand the means of discourse circulation beyond print media and its direct digital translation.

In relation to these two points, every trimester students and staff of XPUB work together on a Special Issue.

Dear gamers,

Pick the Pig, you are a risky trader. Pick the Chicken, and you'll sit on your eggs until they hatch. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a Bull market, or maybe not and have to deal with the Bear. Tear up a book, and get dealing with the free market, exploitation, taxation and the privatization of services. Pit resources and economics against each other and feel the Artifical Scarity burn.

Looking forward to ruin you!

Dear active archivist,

Can an archive save the Poortgebouw? This former squat and vibrant living community is facing a key moment in the future. In this publication, oral histories from the building’s illustrious past interact with material from various collections, including the Poortgebouw’s own Autonomous Archive. Here, archiving is not the end, but the beginning of a debate.
