Conceived in response to pronouncements of the daily newspaper’s demise as a tangible record of events, 'The Last Newspaper' will be a hybrid exhibition
which investigates what is possibly lost and what might be gained in a
world where an avalanche of interpretation compromises the increasingly
vulnerable privileging of facts.
A tabloid, assembled and produced on site by Latitudes, will provide a regularly published record of the enterprise. 'The Last Post' (working title) will be produced during 10 weeks from a live 'editorial situation' in-house at the New Museum. 'The Last Post'
will be a freely distributed ‘old-fashioned’ episodic print publication
rethought in the light of the fundamental shifts taking place in news
production and distribution, while exploring the shared behaviours of
‘the editorial’ and ‘the curatorial’. + info...
