This panel discussion examines the viability of the conventionally printed and published book form—monographic, serial, facsimile, high-value, low-budget, no-budget, and otherwise—as a means of artistic production in the face of the digital and mainstream cultural onslaught. At a time of mass convergence, when so much of the social experience is structured by virtual, electronic means, how might the physical and material residue of small-scale publications yet pertain as a space apart for resistance and individual subjectivity?

Gil Blank, photographer and founding editor of Influence magazine
Collier Schorr, artist and author of Blumen (2010)
Roe Ethridge, artist and author of Rockaway, NY (2008)
James Hoff and Miriam Katzeff, publishers and founders of Primary Information
