Program Cover for the 1982 Office Automation Conference

[San Francisco]: [Nasty Secretary Liberation Front c/o Processed World, [1982]. Paperback. 8vo. Single 8 1/2 x 11" sheet, b/w xerox on peach paper. Fine.

In 1982 members of Processed World costumed themselves and formed a picket line outside of the 1982 Office Automation Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. As part of the protest, they printed up fake covers, and used these covers to doctor the official program for the event, renaming it the "International Conference for the Perpetuation of a Vacuous Existence." The text satiricizes the motives behind increased automation in the workforce. Scarce early ephemera from the PW collective. Item #17708
