  • On the occasion of the book launch of Making Matters. A Vocabulary of Collective Arts, Hackers & Designers (Loes Bogers, Anja Groten, Karl Moubarak) together with Elaine W. Ho (Display Distribute) and Florian Cramer facilitate a 2-day walk-in workshop at documenta fifteen in Kassel by invitation of Jatiwangi art factory. All three collectives have contributed to the book.

    Using a self-developed publishing tool by Hackers & Designers, visitors of documenta were invited to contribute to an instant zine on documenta fifteen and selected terms of the Making Matters vocabulary. The zine was printed on-the-spot and as a work-in-progress on receipt printers.

    The workshop brought together the experimental publishing practices of H&D and Display Distribute in a hands-on explorative manner and invited visitors to join in at any moment.
