About Will Holder: typographer Will Holder once read that oral tradition would lead us out of the post-modern condition, and has since become preoccupied with “publishing”. The publications do not always take the form of ink and paper, and a large part of the preoccupation is spent in finding suitable ‘forms’ for transmission. He sees conversation as a tool and a model for a mutual and improvised set of production conditions, where design is a responsive moment rather than a desired end, and the usual roles of commissioner, author, subject, editor, and typographer are improvised and shared, as opposed to assigned and pre-determined.
In May 2009, Holder curated “Talk Show” at the ICA, an exhibition and season of events concerning speech and accountability. He is editor of F.R.DAVID, a journal concerned with reading and writing in the arts, published by de Appel, Amsterdam. Together with Alex Waterman, Holder is currently editing and designing a biography of American composer Robert Ashley, for two or more voices (New Documents, Vancouver, 2013).


The event will take place in Mediatheque (Meno avilys, Mokytoju namai, Vilniaus g. 39/6, 2nd floor).

The event on the November 24 is open to public and the event on the November 25th is open to Rupert’s participants only.


The event is held via Instant Citizen and supported by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.
