We are looking forward to the Content/Form research workshop organised by SHAPE Digital Citizenship & Digital Aesthetics Research Center, Aarhus University, and the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image (CSNI), London South Bank University, in collaboration with transmediale festival for digital art & culture, Berlin. The workshop is to be held in Berlin, January 29-31, 2024.

Through the workshop’s activities, we reflect on how the technical conditions relate to sustainable research practices and explore ways of collapsing the traditional workflows of academic publishing, drawing more closely together work-in-progress and feedback, writing and review, experimental print production and its dissemination, form and content. Importantly, our point is to stress how technological and social forms come together, and encourage reflection on shared organisational processes and collectivities.

At the workshop participants not only engage with research questions and offer feedback to eachother, but also with the conditions for producing research, the ways it is shared and reviewed, the infrastructures through which it is served, and more.

In support of this we use ServPub an experimental platform for research and practice on computational publishing, to reflect collectively on affective infrastructures, minor tech and autonomous networks within, and beyond, institutional constraints. ServPub is facilitated by In-grid with contributions from Systerserver and supported by CSNI at LSBU, Creative Computing Institute at UAL, SHAPE at Aarhus University, and CC.


The collective newspaper will be made with wiki4print: a collective publishing environment based on the MediaWiki software and web-to-print layout techniques. Using wiki4print allows us to work shoulder-to-shoulder as collaborative writers, editors, designers, developers, in a non-linear publishing workflow where design and content unfolds at the same time, allowing the one to shape the other.

In this sense a "federated" body of knowledge (along with the tool to share it) can function as a kind of "chorus" - a larger network of voices that are not exactly the same thing, but that contribute, through their very diversity, to a larger whole.

To get started

  1. Create a page using the form above. The name that you use for your page is just the wiki page name. You can add the title of your 500 words article/text in the page itself.
  2. Make sure that you do not delete the line: [[Category:Content form]], as this will add your page to the Category:Content form. It can be written anywhere on the page, the bottom is usually where most people put it.
  3. After saving the page, it should then appear in the list below.
  4. For editing, please see the editing guide.
  5. For writing feedback/comments to each others contributions: go to the page of the contribution and click the double speech bubble on the top left corner (under the title, on the left side of the star). See the talk page section in the editing guide for more info.


REQUEST: Make sure the title of your contribution is formatted as a Header 2 and author name in bold (use "edit source", not the visual editor). Example:

<div class="metadata">
'''author name'''

You can create comment pages below.


Name comments with the name of the author to which the comment relates and a number to identify the comment. E.g. NN name the first comment to his/her/their text "NN_1". If a comment relates to more than one author, list each name, e.g. "NN_OO_1". You can, of course, also put links to pages in the comments.

Create one page for each comment/block of comments.

Comments can be extracted from "talk pages" as well as the shared pad They can also be edited, e.g., rephrased as a question.


  1. Remove double line breaks on all comment pages.
  2. On top of each comment page, make sure this is there // replace Content-Form with the actual name of the page (copy/paste):

NB! Footnotes and bibliographies should not be put as comments (but put in the article text).
