F.A.T. The Manual

in black & white!

This is the black & white version of the F.A.T. The manual.

Edited Domenico Quaranta and Geraldine Juarezwith The F.A.T. Manual is co-produced by Link Editions, F.A.T. Lab and MU, Eindhoven in collaboration with XPO Gallery, Paris. With generous support from Baltan Laboratories, Eindhoven and Creative Industries Fund NL, Rotterdam.

In more than five years of activity, the Free Art and Technology Lab produced an impressive series of projects, all developed with open source software, shared online and documented in a way that allows everybody to copy, improve, abuse or simply use them. This approach situates F.A.T. Lab in a long tradition of Diy, processual, sharable artistic practices based on instructionals, and reveals a democratic idea of art where Fluxus scores meet hacker culture (and rap music). The F.A.T. Manual is a selection of more that 100 projects, done in the belief that printing these bits on paper will allow them to spread in a different way, infiltrate other contexts, and germinate. An archive, a catalogue, a user manual and a software handbook. F.A.T. Lab is an organization dedicated to enriching the public domain through the research and development of creative technologies and media.
