DAY AFTER READING IS STARTING A NEW CHAPTER FROM SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER 2016, AROUND THE US-ELECTION.​

 

WE ARE STARTING IN NEW YORK CITY ON SEPTEMBER 6. FOLLOW US ON InstagramTwitter AND Facebook.

 

News is changing. The United States is in the midst of a historic election. “Day After Reading” is a journalistic and artistic project that investigates how U.S. citizens remember and perceive information in the daily news media while uncovering news related memories and habits for getting the news during an unprecedented presidential election season. The project emphasizes everyday news and highlights its relationship with personal experience and the context in which readers live.

Led by Swiss designer/artist Ludovic Balland, a small team will travel to more than twenty cities—from New York City to El Paso to St. Louis to Los Angeles—during a four-month road trip from September to December 2016.

The journey will use individual portraits and interviews to create a contemporary archive about the changing role of media, the diversity of news consumers, and an undoubtedly historical election in the United States.

In 2014, Day After Reading was realized in San Francisco (CA), as Issue No. 1, and in Valencia (CA), as Issue No. 2, in 2015. Both issues are also published here.

During the first month of the trip, Day After Reading will be exhibited at Festival “imagesvevey” in Switzerland, from September 10 until October 2, 2016.
