The Copenhagen Free University (CFU) closed its doors a few years ago, but they still make their great publications available. We were inspired by these beautiful, cheap publications, to make our own series, Temporary Conversations, with die-cut covers and photocopied interiors.
The CFU described themselves this way:
The Copenhagen Free University opened in May 2001 in our flat. The Free University is an artist run institution dedicated to the production of critical consciousness and poetic language. We do not accept the so-called new knowledge economy as the framing understanding of knowledge. We work with forms of knowledge that are fleeting, fluid, schizophrenic, uncompromising, subjective, uneconomic, acapitalist, produced in the kitchen, produced when asleep or arisen on a social excursion - collectively.
Copenhagen Free University #14 is a booklet with an interview with TV-pioneer Tom Weinberg, by Carolyn Faber, documents from the Media Burn Archive and a Guerrilla Television Lexicon, by Carolyn Faber and Jakob Jakobsen.
