Who we are
Lafin's Board of Directors
Our annual board meetings are only tangentially
administrative, as our primary interests lay elsewhere,
in the synthesis of narrautonomous practices with
experiments, images, texts, and etc.
Our collective has been shaped by generations of renegade intellectuals plotting Oulipo-style realities, 'pataphysical expeditions, un-happenings, surveys suspended in time and space. Lafin continues the tradition of being navigated by a board that does whatever the hell it feels like doing.
Our present board of directors is the heart of Lafin. Meeting in person only once a year, due to the great distances that separate them, they work together closely, sharing writing and research by mail.
to keep things moving along
Due to the great distances that separate most Lafin members, text is Lafin's primary geographical location. Lafin's text is not limited to print, or to the web, or to text for that matter.
Once a year, Lafin's boad of directors
submit their schedules to the scrutiny of a rotating
peer member, who makes the decision of when, where,
and for how long.
1982's annual meeting infamously took place over a period of three months in a winterized guest house by a Norwegian pond. In 2001, all met at Charles de Gaule, during someone's 3 hour layover.
The details of this year's meeting are still undisclosed.
