InPrint in Cairo

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Megawords is in the reading room of a great project in Cairo! Some info:

In an economic climate marked by the demise of the publishing house and book- store, artists, writers, and designers are self-producing low-budget, limited editions of experimental publications, and distributing them through their personal networks.

“In Print” begins on Sunday, February 5 at the Townhouse Galley. A room in the gallery will serve as a reading room where visitors can continue these cross-disciplinary discussions over a cup of coffee, and consult a curated selection of publications. Through these interactions and discussions, “In Print” hopes to create a platform for the further development of an independent, artist-driven publishing scene in Cairo.

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Temple University Libraries’ Urban Archives and Megawords Magazine are partnering for a screening as part of the Zoe Strauss: Ten Years exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All films are drawn from our television news collection and are loosely inspired by the work of Zoe Strauss, Megawords and the PMA itself. All footage where the gaze of the news camera puts you in touch with the rituals, traditions, places and challenges of Philadelphia and its residents over three decades. Some material has screened at previous UA screenings and some is new.

Advance tickets are free (but with a $3.50 service charge) here:

This coming Saturday in Berlin – Making Space Taking Place

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

www.artitu.de

Zwei Künstlerduos aus Skandinavien und Berlin bestreiten im Oktober das vorläufige Finale der Ausstellungsreihe „Super Reactive Subjects“ im Senatsreservenspeicher. Präsentiert werden zwei Projekte aus Kopenhagen und Istanbul, die – im öffentlichen Raum entstanden – zum ersten Mal als Installationen ausgestellt werden. Als Grenzgänger, nicht nur innerhalb der Stadt, sondern auch in einer beschleunigten und globalisierten Metropolengesellschaft, untersuchen die Künstler städtische und künstlerische Freiräume, materielle und gedankliche Rückzugsorte. Diese gleichen vorübergehenden Schutzräumen oder selbst erschaffenen Inseln, die ihr urbanes Umfeld hinterfragen.

Eröffnung: Sa, 16. Oktober, 19:00

Ausstellungsdauer: 17. Oktober – 6. November

Do – So, 14.00 – 20.00 und nach Vereinbarung.

Eintritt frei
