A continuation of the series Bulletins of The Serving Library, a cooperatively built archive, #8 explores the notion of “medium” in many senses of the word. Produced on the occasion of Tate Liverpool’s 2014 event Making Things Public, where The Serving Library’s collection of artifacts was installed alongside two related exhibitions, Transmitting Andy Warhol and a solo exhibit by video artist Gretchen Bender, this publication examines how different generations of artists have responded to and experimented with mass media to extend the possibilities of artistic practice. Included are an email exchange between London-based designer Paul Elliman and pioneer of voice synthesis Richard T. Gagnon, and a collage of voices that conjure Warhol’s aura by British writer and novelist Michael Bracewell. With further contributions by Elie Apache, Stuart Bailey, Eli Diner, Emily Gephart, Lucy Mulroney, Larissa Harris and Joe Scanlan.
