Volumes of Text is a performative reading object, and a collection about and through redundant technologies made as part of an exhibition of alternative publishing-based practices, curated by Ladies of the Press*. The collection brings together thirteen writers each giving their take on the subjects of redundant technologies, redundant media, redundant ideas.

Digital becomes analogue and back again. – During the course of the exhibition, each piece is presented as the reel of a cassette tape. Yet another redundant technology. Parallel to the exhibition, the collection is available in a digital edition, serving as a virtual remnant of the real world show.

Annexe [Nick Murray’s small press, now defunct] was part of the exhibition alongside Pigeon Magazine and Very Small Kitchen. Each a unique point for contemporary alternative publishing.
