Metakatz is a collective reader extending the questions raised by the book, Katz and its fatal destruction. Artists, critics, lawyers, social scientists, destruction facility specialists and anonymous blog users were invited to contribute their feedback and investigate other rip-off practices in comics, research the use of animal metaphors in storytelling or produce derivative works. This book gave birth to an ongoing research project Essaim, a web platform publisher that brings in tandem the potential of p2p and crowd-funding with the aim to produce authorless books that can be assumed on a collective nebular basis. The book comes with a seven inch vinyl that documents the industrial destruction of the book Katz.
