“Set behind the scenes of an artist-run, New York-based publishing company, the play Badlands Unlimited (Act 1) follows seven characters as they launch an erotic novella, deal with internal conflicts, and imagine the promise and threat of technology between the pages and in our lives.”

The new series ” ” looks at the forms and roles of publishing as and within artists’ practices; hosting conversations with artists who work at the intersection of publishing and exhibition-making, in the realm of circulation, dissemination, spamming, dispersion, print, data, language, infection, fashion, networks, disturbance, myth, parasiting, and infiltration.
