- Erkki Kurenniemi: In 2048, Friday 14 September @ Documenta 13.
Commissioned by KURATOR (Joasia Krysa) and dOCUMENTA (13), Constant members Nicolas Malevé and Michael Murtaugh have developed a series of experiments in connection with the archive of Erkki Kurenniemi, the Finnish artist and technology pioneer of the 1960s. Over the duration of dOCUMENTA (13), Constant explore Kurenniemi's work as a database-body in progress – as a living archive. The session introduces the concept of 'Active Archives' and the Kurenniemi project, and invites participants to explore the alternative interpretations together with Constant.

Cut the words and see how they fall. William Burroughs on Brion Gysin and cut-ups
