information as material, Wrriters in Residence at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, April 01, 2011 – March 31, 2012.
iam have proudly accepted an invitation from one of Europe’s most prestigous contemporary art institutions, the Whitechapel Gallery, London, to be their Writers-in-Residence. Building on the great work done by the first two writers to hold the post — Maria Fusco and Sally O’Reilly — iam will be presenting a series of editions and alternative schools, as well as engaging with the exhibitions programme during the year. Activities will happen on site and online. An archive of iam’s residency will be presented here.
From their PR:
Writer collective information as material have been called literary perverts, philosophically irresponsible and inspired lunatics. They have also taught, published, produced, curated, exhibited and performed internationally.
For their Whitechapel Gallery residency, Craig Dworkin, Christine Morris, Simon Morris, Nick Thurston and Simon Zimmerman will programme events that explore the possibilities opened up by conceptualist approaches to writing and performative approaches to reading. Through editions, conferences, workshops, discussions, screenings and collaborations, the York-based independent publishing imprint will create a space for a poetic and critical engagement with issues such as ‘undesigning’, anti-expressionism and cultural piracy.
