uhhmm, what software are people using to catalogue their books at home? I just realised that Calibre is not very good when you use it for other purposes than an e-book catalogue...

Just got the Feminist Finance Zine from Amateur Cities & The Institute of Network Cultures and I’m well impressed!

So, my video “Is it time to eat, or is there no more time to eat?” is currently playing in a loop at esc medien kunst labor in Graz, during the exhibition Cyborg Subjects. I find that pretty nice, all things considered. Wish I were there to see it all. esc.mur.at/en/projekt/cyborg-s

Food zine still in the works, just struggling with design and scribus and just design in general. 30 to 40 pages on goodness out soon!

If you’re also on Twitter, join the conversation tonight with and for the launch of the Feminist Finanance Zine

I’ve extended the deadline for the quarantine food zine until the 26th of April, so if you have something to share, share away! zine.alicestrete.me/

open call for food zine 

In the midst of our collective quarantine, I’m fighting against my lack of motivation by putting out an open call for a zine. My relationship with food/eating/cooking has changed dramatically in these weeks of physical distancing, and I want to document my experience alongside that of others. Looking for text, images, lists, recipes, for a digital zine which will be shared freely. Please share this fwd. More info here: zine.alicestrete.me/

Read & Repair feat. The Bootleg Library (on Sunday)
