SECOND CIRCULATION

SECOND CIRCULATION
workshop by Marco Balesteros, Sofia Gonçalves & Michael Satter

DRUGI OBIEG was used to describe samizdat material in Poland. It means SECOND CIRCULATION (opposed to the first circulation which was the official one) and in that sense a way to avoid censorship.
Working around this concept, the aim of this workshop is to create a set of individual publications that would be edited, designed and produced by the participants, recurring to available means.
Using second-hand publications as raw material and having in mind concepts like second reading, second use, second meaning, the participants are asked to rethink / reinterpret / re-evaluate / rewrite the
publication, based on one or more of the following themes:
1) Function / Form . 2) Structure / Material. 3) Edition / Content. 4) Use / Value. 5) Distribution / Circulation. 6) Context / Environment. 7) Production.
Following this ideas, the notion of PARALLEL ECONOMIES, as structures that are created outside the established circuits in order to survive, will also be approached.
