Will Holder presents the forth and last iteration of the series On and Off the Grid, a yearly program of presentations and events dedicated to various form(at)s of publishing. Taking place in the window display at the Hofgarten, the format provides a platform for the introduction, examination, and (re)negotiation of the materials and processes involved in publishing.
On Friday, November 11, at 7pm, he will reproduce—in public—some lines by the poet Alice Notley, as a prelude to a publication he will publish, of her speaking publicly, transcribed.
Will is a typographer who makes books, informed by an ongoing study of conversation, song and music-making as a co-authored process, produced in the space between speaking-bodies-as-documents, on and off the page. With Alex Waterman and Robert Ashley, he edited the songbook Yes, But Is It Edible? The music of Robert Ashley for two or more voices. Will also edits F.R.DAVID, a journal concerned with reading & writing and the organisation and reproduction of language (published 2007–2016 by de Appel, Amsterdam; co-published by uh books with KW, Berlin).
