Public Art Provocateur Jason Eppink’s Print After Parties


According to his website, Jason Eppink‘s Print After Parties are “a series of unauthorized notional raves thrown in the abandoned distribution infrastructure of crumbling print institutions. (They’re pretend parties, not real ones.)” These newsrack makeovers are either the best thing we’ve seen in a while or totally depressing. We haven’t decided which yet. Either way, they make us want to dance. When is the last time news involving print media did that?

“The Print After Parties continue this line of collaboration with blinking LEDs, disco balls, cut-out silhouettes, and handheld radios,” Jason, who also happens to be the Assistant Curator of Digital Media at the Museum of the Moving Image, explains. “When the last vestiges of a collapsed empire litter the landscape, there’s only one thing to do: throw a bumpin’ party and dance on the ruins.”
