The Mock and other superstitions
Launch of ISSUE 2 – Anecdotes as new theory

In occasion of the launch, Simon Fujiwara will read an excerpt from his erotic story Meat Curtains (Cortinas de Carne).
Olivier Castel will also show a slideshow of images called ‘graves’, from his archive.
At the same time (and during the entire weekend) Eleanor Brown and Conor Donlon will present their selection of books in conjunction with the final week of FormContent’s It’s not for reading. It’s for making.
