No Legacy || Literatura electrónica (NL||LE) originated at the Bancroft Library of UC Berkeley in spring 2016, curated by Alex Saum-Pascual, assistant professor of Spanish at UC Berkeley, and Élika Ortega, assistant professor of Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies at Northeastern University.

NL||LE at CCA presents a subset of works from the original exhibition that focus on electronic literature in Spanish and English together with print works of contemporary postdigital experimentalism.

Devoted to postdigital issues, the works gathered here signal a nonlinear relationship between print and digital that blur the lines between them and look for instances in which they complement each other.

What is the role of print now that everything can be made digital?

What are the ways digital objects are informed by print?
