散颼颼文件展—「脫機晾紙:自出版行動備忘」

2024-05-25 - 2024-06-15



本展以「脫機晾紙:自出版行動備忘」為題──「晾紙」原為印刷用語,指將待印的紙張分開晾置於通風良好處調濕,使其回復至自然安定的狀態。「脫機」(offline,亦作離線)指向自出版實踐中分散且與手工混成的生產形式——相對於印刷資本主義生產線的「聯機」(in-line)作業,又引申為以自發和自主的游離運動,來回應「機心」、「機器」、「機制」等當代文化生產之關鍵紐結。在數位倦怠成為普遍症候的當下,重訪基於紙媒介的自出版行動,「脫機晾紙」在提示類比、及手、具身的「舊媒介」潛能的同時,亦包含「晾」的行動主義備忘:於靜中問動,緣時而生力,為潛在的改變積蓄勢能。

本次展覽基於對近年中國自出版的考察,初步描繪其間分散而自主的形態與路徑,同時集結多家自出版單位之勞作成果,在一個晦暗不明的時刻,落地現身,連結朋友。

日期:2024.05.25 — 2024.06.09,週三至日,2pm – 8pm

關於散颼颼(Saansausau)

散颼颼(Saansausau)是以自出版為主要關注的另類知識生產小組。散颼颼本為粵語用詞,「散」象徵著小組成員來處各異,而「颼颼」一方面意味著紙張被風吹落的形態,如同自出版實踐本身,充滿多重媒介的可能性;另一方面,散颼颼音近於「『散』收收/修修」,同時有把散落各處的文件收集起來的意味,這就像小組成員因緣際會而展開重構自出版面貌的工作,嘗試以策展與出版,連結物質媒介與情感結構的討論,和其間種種張力的形態扎根於環環相扣的歷史脈絡。

saansausau documenta — Airing Paper (offline): Rise of Self-publishing Waves

Airing paper, a technical term in the printing industry, refers to a procedure of paper moisture conditioning to restore its nature and resilience, where paper lies flat in a ventilated space. Offline indicates the decentralized mode of production combining mechanical printing and craftsmanship in the course of zine making, unlike the capital-intensive in-line production in print capitalism. The term further connotes the spontaneous, autonomous, and ambiguous self-printing movement, prompting a dialogue with contemporary cultural production in terms of calculation self-interest (jixin), machinery (jiqi), and institutions (jizhi).

While digital fatigue seeps into our contemporary life, (offline) serves as a visual index of disconnection from computer networks. By revisiting the self-publishing movement, Airing Paper (offline) sheds light on the potentiality of the analog, tactile, and embodied medium, which is seemingly out-of-date. Further seen in a dialectic of movement and stillness, the act of airing implies an undercurrent of social transformation waiting in the wings.

Airing Paper (offline): Rise of Self-publishing Waves offers a contour of the self-publishing practice in contemporary China and charts their scattered, autonomous configurations and routes by featuring a significant number of zine publishers’ works. Amid the time of obscurity and uncertainty, Airing Paper (offline) rises to the horizon and encounters friends via curatorial practice.

Dates: 2024.05.25 — 2024.06. 09 (Wed-Sun 2pm – 8pm)

About Saansausau

Saansausau is an alternative knowledge production group on zine studies. Saansausau is a Cantonese idiom, which indicates the diverse social and cultural backgrounds of their members. Sausau, the ​​onomatopoeia for wind, represents papers blown in the wind, which further symbolizes the experimental possibilities of self-publishing practices with collage, juxtaposition, parodies, and explorations of multimedia. Saansausau also bears resemblance with shou and xiu in Cantonese pronunciation, which implies their aspiration of collecting various self-publications. The group seeks to map the self-publishing practice and articulate the dimensions of materiality, media, structures of feeling, and affects through curation and publications. Their research project currently delves into the self-publishing networks in China and studies similar practices in Asia and the world as reference points. Rather than offering an overview of all self-publishing practice, Saansausau examines the medium specificity of zines and its formation of culture, aesthetics, and networks of activism.
