Hyperdub/Flatlines Press, 2021, Softcover, 120 pages, 17.8 × 11 cm
Ø is the first publication on Hyperdub’s new book imprint, Flatlines Press. Between January 2017 and March 2020, the label threw 36 events at Corsica Studios in South London. Curated by Kode9 and Shannen SP, with logo and flyer design by Manuel Sepulveda a.k.a Optigram, the events brought together the label’s artists with some of our favourite musicians from around the world, while on what is usually the club’s main dance floor, audio/visual and sometimes performative installations mutated the space in often surprising ways. This 120 page book, designed and edited by Optigram, is a time capsule of those 36 events, featuring full colour photos of the installations, conceptual abstracts, artist bios, short additional texts and a flyer archive of the line ups.
Featuring Klein, Mica Levi, Lawrence Lek, John Akomfrah, Lee Gamble, The Otolith Group, Anna Mikkola, Jesse Kanda, Arca, Nkisi & more.
