POST-MAD THEORY

MAD THEORY went smashingly – what an exciting inaugural event!  Our warmest thanks to our presenters for sharing their innovative, inspiring, transgressive, gorgeous, provocative work with us, and to our audience/participants for their curiosity, energy, and contributions to the collaborative durational performance that was the symposium itself!

We estimated a total of 70 – 80 attendees throughout the day, and noticed a tangible sense of community-building between scholars and artists of UW-Madison and the larger Madison community.

And the Library as Incubator Project is going to do a publication about the event!

View a selection of photos by Paul Andrews and Angela Richardson here. We’ll post a larger selection soon.

Speaking of documentation:  we are planning to put together a small publication (probably an e-book) documenting the proceedings of the symposium.  We’d very much appreciate it if you could send us:

1. Any photographs you took

2. A reflection about the day – about your own project, someone else’s project, and/or the day as a whole.  Long or short, whether a sentence or a page – we’d love to include your response in the e-book!  Feel free to use mixed media if you’d like to extend beyond text in your reflection!

Whether you were a presenter or an audience member, we’d love to hear from you!
