This event has long past but I never posted the invite to this blog (Facebook has taken over most of that type of business, unfortunately).

By theater [object] we mean:

1. “theater as an object,” as in the state of contemporary theater (about which we offer no opinion)
2. “the object of theater,” as in why do it at all? what are the aims? (we don’t know but might care)
3. “a theater of objects,” as in the materials of theater above and beyond the “imitation” of “reality”

The object of theater [object] to present, in an ongoing series of one-night shows, 5 or so 15-20 minute lo-tech performances of new or in-progress works of experimental theater. What’s “experimental theater”?

The playwright Mac Wellman once referred to the mainstream theater as the “theater of the already known.” It’s the theater for audiences who already know what “theater” is — what a plot is, what a character is, what a moral of the story or a “message” is, what it means to be sad, what it means to be happy, what it means to sing in key, etc. — and who more or less get that when they go to see theater. Experimental theater is any theater that is not that theater.

Outside of that, we don’t aim to be prescriptive. Theater can also be performance art, dance, music, improvisation, monologue, film and video, puppetry, poetry, polemical rants or documentary so long as it is none of those. That is, theater must care about theater as an object and the object of theater, and not mainly the object of some other form of art-making, and especially about the theater of objects (especially language as an object) to be this theater. See?

If you are a writer, director, artist or performer with a new project and are interested in participating in the first theater [object] event (we’re aiming for a February 2013 premiere), please write an email describing your idea along with samples of previous work. We’ll take it from there.

The L.A. Telephone Book is a collection of new work by contemporary Southern California writers and text-artists compiled and designed by poet and digital artist Brian Kim Stefans (that is, me).

The volume is free for download from Mediafire (see links below).

The collection was created based on a semi-open call to writers and artists for up to 7 pages of work, set in 6 x 9 in .pdf format, which were then assembled into the present file. All choices were made by the artists and presented as they created it. Several artists contributed notes and statements about their work.

Digital Humanities “Jam”: A Workshop Seminar

Friday, April 15th, 10-2
CDH “Laptop Room,” Room B01
LuValle Café (enter down stairs from south side)

Light refreshments will be provided; please RSVP.


The goal of this seminar is to consider ways in which graduate students in English and other departments of the humanities can integrate Digital Humanities into their research and scholarship. The structure of the seminar is as follows: early in the semester we will meet for a “jam session” on the digital humanities, during which students will be introduced to the concepts, technologies, and projects that are associated with the field. Students will be given an overview of work specific to UCLA, both by faculty and students, as well as in other universities when they speak of “digital humanities.” Students will then begin to consider how they can create projects that are integrated into their present research while taking advantage of digital technology, or at least the insight provided by theorists in the field.

If you are interested in the emerging edge of language-informed arts practice, whether as a poet, writer, artist, media innovator, scholar, teacher, performer, or in any other disciplines, E-Poetry offers a context for practice and analysis that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. For its tenth anniversary, E-Poetry has been brought back to Buffalo, a central and accessible location for its activities. It will provide a mix of practices, with the emphasis on emerging practices in multiple disciplines that find themselves embedded or even just on the edge of the digital. It will convene a celebratory (in the triumphant spirit of preceding historic poetry festivals) and thought-filled gathering of 150 artists, writers, and scholars from 40 countries — a diversity and culturally rich offering that won’t be found elsewhere. Please attend:

E-POETRY 2011 International Digital Language | Arts Festival
University at Buffalo
Specially-priced advance registration offered during March 2011 only!

E-Poetry is the definitive innovative digital language arts festival in the world. With its emphasis on poetics, performance, engaged arts, experimentation, and scholarly and artistic conversation, and with previous events in West Virginia, London, Paris, and Barcelona, it has defined international digital literature poetics today.

The tenth anniversary festival of E-Poetry 2011 is set to launch a new epoch in digital literature. E-Poetry, at its inception, was the first to map this field. E-Poetry has been here since the beginning and continues even stronger today. It has set out to organize the 2011 festival as a culmination of the first ten years as well as a model for future years – advancing the conversation of the digital into the engaged scene of creative and scholarly activity that the field promises.

With its sponsoring organization, the Electronic Poetry Center, often recognized as the world’s first and preeminent Web-based poetry resource, E-Poetry will define the arts as emerging practice in an interdisciplinary, aesthetically complex, and materially delightful manner never before seen. We invite you to be there.

The Festival will take place from Weds. May, 18th to Saturday May 21st, 2011, with special conference events on Tues, May 17 and its Wednesday “Scientific Committee” panels. Please come for as long as you can. The cost of visiting Buffalo is quite reasonable. We will be glad to help with suggestions for your travel and accommodation. E-Poetry offers the chance for a prolonged immersion into considerations of the workings and practices of digital poets, scholars, and artists. Buffalo is a location, fervent with the great powers of the Niagara rushing through the tranquil, flat, maple forested countryside of Western New York, where we can come together, apart from the hustle of a devouring city, to meet as artists and thinkers. It is a location that offers celebration and contemplation. It is a quiet place but a location within New York State’s largest university, its programs direct descendants of Black Mountain College, Language Poetry, various iterations of the Poetics Program, Media Study at Buffalo, and the Electronic Poetry Center. Buffalo is a prime leader in the U.S. in the innovative digital, visual, sound, and language arts.

Information is available via the EPC, where you will always find the latest information on E-Poetry 2011. (#epf11)

We look forward to seeing you at E-Poetry 2011!

I’d like to announce a new inter-departmental UCLA student reading group focused on the writing and research of graduate students investigating “modernist” (i.e. anything roughly after 1850 or so, depending on language) and/or “experimental” (i.e. anything non-normative, purposefully or not, that reflects emergent formal or aesthetic features) literature and text art. Oh, by “text art,” I mean any form of art production that has a strong textual component, including performance, painting, film, digital text-art and video games.

I am patterning this group on the Americanist Research Colloquium that Christopher Looby (English) conducts, in the sense that papers will be distributed to interested parties via email before the sessions, and not be “presented” in person. Sessions will be given over entirely to discussion of the paper. The main task of the reading group would be to critique standard, page-based academic productions – namely, the essays that you would hope to have published in peer-reviewed journals – but with an additional emphasis on inter-departmental information exchange. This might seem “retro” given that I am a Digital Humanities Professor, but hiring and promotions in the academy today is still largely based on the journal article, and it is, indeed, a most convenient genre for critique in brief, informal settings.

Participants would be invited to present or attend from any number of departments, including Art History, Music, Philosophy, Film, Television and Media, and Design / Media Arts and the Humanities, from a variety of languages and sub-disciplines. I already have four students who are interested in presenting, and hope to have a schedule together soon for the remainder of the present quarter and Spring. Eventually, I would also invite scholars from Southern California (whoever would travel cheaply or for free) to present their recent, unpublished writing for critique by students (and myself).

I’m also arranging to have events modestly catered, so that they’re nice social events to assuage the loneliness of being an impoverished, under-appreciated graduate student.

Please drop me an email at bstefans@gmail (not my humnet address, as I find it difficult to organize large volumes of email there) if you are interested in being on our mailing list.

Against Expression: An Anthology of Conceptual Writing

Edited by Craig Dworkin and Kenneth Goldsmith

Price $45

In much the same way that photography forced painting to move in new directions, the advent of the World Wide Web, with its proliferation of easily transferable and manipulated text, forces us to think about writing, creativity, and the materiality of language in new ways.

In Against Expression, editors Craig Dworkin and Kenneth Goldsmith present the most innovative works responding to the challenges posed by these developments. Charles Bernstein has described conceptual poetry as “poetry pregnant with thought.”

Against Expression, the premier anthology of conceptual writing, presents work that is by turns thoughtful, funny, provocative, and disturbing. Dworkin and Goldsmith, two of the leading spokespersons and practitioners of conceptual writing, chart the trajectory of the conceptual aesthetic from early precursors including Samuel Beckett and Marcel Duchamp to the most prominent of today’s writers.

Nearly all of the major avant-garde groups of the past century are represented here, including Dada, OuLiPo, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, and Flarf to name just a few, but all the writers are united in their imaginative appropriation of found and generated texts and their exploration of nonexpressive language.

Against Expression is a timely collection and an invaluable resource for readers and writers alike.

Authors include: Monica AASPRONG, Walter ABISH, Vito ACCONCI, Kathy ACKER, Sally ALATALO, Paal Bjelke ANDERSEN, David ANTIN, Louis ARAGON, Nathan AUSTIN, J. G. BALLARD, Fiona BANNER, Derek BEAULIEU, Samuel BECKETT, Caroline BERGVALL, Charles BERNSTEIN, Ted BERRIGAN, Jen BERVIN, Gregory BETTS, Christian BÖK, Marie BUCK, William S.

Poets will read for 3 minutes (or less); we place violators on the subway to the sea, MTA-guaranteed, by which we mean they shall never arrive. We have to be out of the venue by midnight, so windbags will be haters. If it sounds like a puptent happening, get this: it is a proper theater, so at least there are no chairs to fold!

There is a parking lot, and during the event there will be an inexpensive cash bar, but we have no other details on the space. It looks really great in the photos.

Did we mention there’s a grand piano?
