SADLIBS, 2020, writing workshop & web project*
Organized in collaboration with: Saskia Clerckx, Rudy Falagan & Janine Sun Rogers
Programming: Janine Sun Rogers
Technical support: Yehuda Duenyas

SADLIBS is an obituary-writing workshop that was organized during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants met on Zoom where they were randomly assigned a writing partner. Partners posed each other questions and gathered information that was then used to draft an experimental obituary. Finished obituaries were later redacted and put into a computer program that combined and repositioned the texts into one constantly evolving Collective Obituary. SADLIBS is a work-in-process that is open to anyone who is curious about what it means to be alive today.
