Algolit

Algolit is a project of Constant, a workgroup around i-literature, free code and texts. The group was initiated in 2012 by Catherine Lenoble and An Mertens.
Since then, the algoliterarian space has been created and recreated together with: Nicolas Malevé, Olivier Heinry, Stéphanie Villayphiou, Brendan Howell, Gijs De Heij, Christina Cochior, Hans Lammerant, Manetta Berends, Mia Melvaer, Olivier Perriquet.

The group meets regularly following the principles of the Oulipo-meetings: they share work and thoughts and create together, with or without the company of an invitee. Algolit is open to anyone interested in exchanging practises around digital ways of reading and writing.
