During the NY Art Book Fair, The Classroom – a curated series of informal conversations, workshops, readings, and other artist-led programs, organized by David Senior – will engage visitors in lively conversation all weekend long.
Some highlights in the Classroom space include an interview with the designer Karel Martens, a screening of Matt Wolf’s short documentary on Joe Brainard, a talk with Luis Camnitzer, readings by Petra Cortright, Bob Nickas, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and Laurie Weeks and discussions by Jeanine Olesen with Johanna Burton and Emma Hedditch with Isla Leaver-Yap, talks with Terry Smith, Hito Steyerl and a rousing performance of The Electronic Information Age LP, an homage to McLuhan’s Medium is the Massage LP. Ongoing events include the acclaimed zine trade meet-up by Ryan Foerester, a documentation project by Carson Salter and Sandeep Buller, and a freaked-out time keeping device by Dexter Sinister and Erik Wysocan.
