Keynote: Paul Chan, "Publish to Perish"
Artist Paul Chan began publishing limited-edition books, e-books, and art works under imprint Badlands Unlimited in 2010. His questions about the viability of publishing will form the subject of this address, including: "Is publishing a form of addiction? What is a book? How is reading a book different than looking at art? Does light change the nature of what appears on paper and screen? How come I was served with a warrant for outstanding taxes? Why does running Badlands waste so much time and lose so much money? What does this have to do with pleasure?"
