about ECho chamber

ECHO CHAMBER asbl is a small-scale, not-for-profit organization established under Belgian law and based in Brussels. It has the mission to research, document and occasionally raise funds for the production of radical works and speculative practices in the field of contemporary comics. Animated by Ilan Manouach’s work, Echo Chamber claims for a perpetual becoming of the medium in a globalized, interconnected industry. Its outreach agenda includes the following: 1) the international project Shapereader, a system of tactile communication for makers of comics with visual disabilities.2) Futures of Comics, a recurrent public programme of non-academic research in collaboration with Swiss comics festival Fumetto.3) the innovative research project Applied Memetic, the first graphic novel entirely generated by artificial intelligence.4) A futures market portfolio of Radical Media Conservation techniques for comics collectorship.5) the curation of the Digital Archive of Conceptual Comics for the Monoskop Shadow Library that reflects the needs of digital preservation for marginalized, under-the-radar works.
