ASAB

What is All Sources Are Broken?

All Sources Are Broken is an internet-based-project developed by Labor Neunzehn. ASAB is both an artistic experiment and a collaborative re-archival practice, which presents itself as an open access WCMS for the investigation of the hypertext space in post-digital books. By exploring the text through multimedia content, the website enables a contextual cross-referencing between books, citations and online data. This way, ASAB aims at expanding books content while keeping track, at the same time, of hyperlinks obsolescence.

Why ASAB?

Asab is born as a specific archival practice in Labor Neunzehn. All Sources Are Broken is an artistic experiment that aims at playing with online media sources and book citations while reflecting on open access resources, open archives, digital distribution, publishing, knowledge, outside of the academic discourse and the university industry.

What are the evolution and the goal of the website?

We are very positive about the evolution of this website, having in mind further steps for the project and different fields of action, which will involve people, code, printing, video and performance. In the next future ASAB aims at expanding from www to publishing, allowing HTML to PDF conversion, export and online print.
