On Saturday, April 12th, Publication Studio hosted an open discussion on “authorship” as part of Portland2014’s Saturday Series. Rather than trying to define authorship, or the “role” of an author, the discussion investigated different models of authorship in publishing and in the art world today. Subject-ness, Intentionality, Authority, Technology, and Ownership were all topics that were discussed in relation to The Artist as Author; The Curator as Author; The Publisher as Author. In keeping with the casual nature of the talk, no conclusions were drawn to close the discussion—except, perhaps, that there are no conclusions to homilize, as the definition of authorship today is constantly changing. During the discussion, we read Marjorie Perloff, Charles Bernstein, Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes, Ann Lauterbach, Lyn Hejinian, Kenneth Goldsmith, Robert Grenier and referenced the works of Matt Keegan, Paul Chan, Delaney Allen, Mikko Kourikni, Alex Felton, Jacob Kassay, Marcel Duchamp, Oscar Tuazon, and others.
