Executing Practices book launch

Executing Practices is a public book launch and alternative presentation of content from the forthcoming book Executing Practices, published by Autonomedia in the DATA browser series in early 2017. The book brings together artists, curators, programmers, and theorists whose practices make critical intervention into executions (of code, orders, laws etc.), drawing attention to their assembled structures and biopolitical strategies. The contributing authors engage with execution from diverse vantage points, defining the actors and forces guiding execution practices, and for whom or what they are performed. Queering the typical book launch, the event features different execution practices from the book, expanding related dialogue beyond the written texts. [see here]
