Book now

ON/OFF is a series of discussions produced and chaired by online-based collective TabloidArtHistory at Stills: Centre for Photography, Edinburgh. Over the course of three weeks, TabloidArtHistory will receive various internet-based art producers, critics and writers, and explore with them the specificity of their practices, online and offline. ON / OFF seeks to map-out the changes and evolution of the art discourse in the digital era, in conversations entirely led by producers whose work is at the centre of these changes.
