Laurence Scherz

Laurence Scherz is co-editor of the second Critical Meme Reader together with Chloë Arkenbout, a real highlight in their career. A writer, spoken word artist, tattoo artist and meme admin on @lothememeho, they work as a researcher and editor for the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam, as well as (guest)editor for De Gids and Boekmanstichting. Their research involves semiotics within visual and/or viral culture, the neurological impact of the digital, theory-fiction, and the (poetic) power of memes. In the past they worked for The Hmm, Metropolis M, Valiz and documenta 14. They’re currently writing their first novel.
