Paul Chan: A Discussion on the Art of Publishing

Join us as we welcome celebrated artist Paul Chan for a conversation on the art of publishing, in all its messy social practice!
Artist, writer, and publisher Paul Chan and Rain Taxi editor Eric Lorberer discuss the artistry of independent publishing.  Also sure to be discussed will be Chan’s new book Above All Waves: Wisdom from Tominaga Nakamoto, the Philosopher Rumored to Have Inspired Bitcoin, and local independent writers, artists, publishers, and booksellers will be part of the mix too. It’s a meeting of the minds not to be missed!

Born in Hong Kong in 1973, New York-based artist, writer, and publisher Paul Chan came to prominence in the early 2000s with vibrant moving image works that touched upon aspects of war, religion, pleasure, and politics. In 2009, following a decade of art-making, Chan embarked on a self-imposed break, turning his attention to publishing and the economics of information by founding the press Badlands Unlimited, which experiments with a range of conceptual and material publishing practices.
