    Printers are not only a source of anger due to their constant non-functioning, but also a source of e-waste due to their short lifespan. Our old printing devices are stored in storage rooms and spend their existence there. Sometimes they get handed over to waste dumps. Printers are undead and haunt us.

    In this workshop, we explore the inner workings of printers. With a DIY and DIWO approach and by hacking and modifying obsolete printers we find different uses and meanings for them. Is there a printing beyond having driver problems? Can we repurpose e-waste printers in something beyond frustration?

    If you have an old printer, bring it to the workshop.

    This Extratonal Education session will be supervised by Joseph Knierzinger and PLF.

    This event is made possible with the kind support of Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
