Free Reader

An Incomplete Reader for the Ongoing Project, “One day, everything will be free…” is perhaps better understood as approximating software rather than a book or an exhibition catalog. Just as with software releases–where version 0.0.1 is followed indefinitely with sporadic updates, bug-fixes, and complete revisions–the publication is, and will always be, necessarily incomplete and unfinished.

Changes will be made to reflect critique and response from audiences and interlocutors, adjustments in trajectory for the overall program, and the addition of interventions or proposals from artists, writers, and possibly a few uninvited outsiders. Ongoing releases will be distributed in the form of a free PDF and occasionally in an inexpensively bound hard copy. A recent print edition of the reader can also be found at SALT Research.

The early releases include interviews with Regine Basha, Celine Condorelli, Katya Sander, and Carey Young, as well as texts by Michel Bauwens, İsmail Ertürk, David Graeber, Lawrence Liang, Matteo Pasquinelli, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Dieter Roelstraete, Joshua Simon and Slavoj Žižek—but this is always already subject to change.

The update to version 0.1.6 of the reader includes the addition of interviews with artists Carey Young and Annika Eriksson, texts by Alexandru Balasescu and Federica Bueti, and an artist project by Burak Delier.
