Daniel Nester, on his We Who Are About to Die blog, has posted “lots of conceptual writing links and clips." Of course a dump of links, such as this one, is a great way to immerse oneself in a writing practice, but it also raises serious questions. Nester includes not only the obvious choices (Goldsmith, Place, etc), but also a number of YouTube clips which are, strictly speaking, not so much Conceptual Writing as the culture from which Conceptual Writing has sprung. But is there a difference?
