Carrier Bag Music


The mixtape as care package, the text as container: Accompanying the publication of Carrier Bag Fiction (Das Neue Alphabet – Volume 6) the audio series Carrier Bag Music will be released as a podcast. Based on Ursula K. Le Guin’s essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, the book and mixtapes explore the idea of gathering and caring.

The audio series is curated by Ignota Books in cooperation with the Camden Art Centre and Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

With contributions by Laurel Halo, Elysia Crampton, Jenna Sutela and Sin Wai Kin fka Victoria Sin
