Book Description

Pleasure Dome is pleased to announce the launch of its very first e-book, Imagining Futures of Experimental Media (2023). Edited by Aaditya Aggarwal, Elida Schogt, and Fan Wu, and designed by Rupali Morzaria, this digital publication was made possible through the generosity of the Canada Council of the Arts’s Strategic Funds & Initiatives: Digital Now Grant.

Contributions by Aaditya Aggarwal, Angel Callander, Lena Chen, Eli Hirtle, Gladys Lou, Renata Azevedo Moreira, Divine Ndemeye, Dhvani Ramanujam, Darian Razdar, Cody Rooney, Elida Schogt, and Fan Wu.

This book is published by Pleasure Dome in collaboration with the National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition whose priority is to support, promote, and advocate for Indigenous media artists and arts organizations, and OddSide Arts, a cultural arts not-for-profit that fosters a space for Afro-descendants, especially women, gender-expansive and LGTBQ+ folks, to theorize, create, and contribute to the development of the equitable future.

Pleasure Dome gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts. This publication was made possible through their Strategic Funds & Initiatives: Digital Now grant.

Special thanks to Theresa Slater, Queen Zakiyyah Kukoyi, Nico Taylor, Jennifer Smith, Lauren Fournier, Sylvia Nowak, Jennifer Laiwint, and Katherine Connell for their support on this project.
