We are pleased to announce the launch of the latest Issue of APRJA
A Peer-reviewed Journal about Excessive Research

EXCESSIVE RESEARCH refers to the announcement of transmediale 2016,
Conversation Piece, which highlights the compulsive actions of digital
culture, and how we are constantly encouraged to stay active, to make, to
share and to secure. By addressing notions of radical boredom,
blockchains, honey trading, menstruation, poetry and the will to
technology, the journal issue addresses what is otherwise destined for
waste, and the potential transgression of economized exchange.

Following a research workshop in Liverpool, organised in partnership with
transmediale, Liverpool John Moores University and the Liverpool Biennial,
this latest issue of APRJA delves into the nature of these actions and
their limits. It asks what happens when research is less about exchange
and more about excess?

VOLUME 5, ISSUE 1, 2016
Edited by Christian Ulrik Andersen and Geoff Cox, with contributions from
Aideen Doran, Pablo R. Velasco Gonzalez, Nathan Jones, Kasper Schiølin,
Sumugan Sivanesan, Cornelia Sollfrank, Wolfgang Sützl, Marie Louise Juul
Søndergaard, Tessa Zettel.
