Praktik: During this workshop we will review artists publications practices that relates to the political landscape where they were published. We will sketch ideas and ask ourselves when and why make a publication and which kind of specifies the book can have in relation with the social-political landscape that we inhabit. 

Dag 1:fredag 16 november, kl 17.00 – 20.00. I propose a first day where to share strategies and publications with focus in Mexico to give a personal overview of what it has been published there: from Ulises Carrion to nowadays, focusing in the dematerialization of artists books, collective projects connected with the political landscape of the country and printed matter that intervene in the public sphere.

Dag 2: lördag 17 november, kl 10.00 – 14.00. During the second day we will speak about the roll of the editor as a political figure, and we will approach to the question and the limits of the artist as editor and distributor?

Dag 3: lördag 24 november, kl 10.00 – 13.00. Finally, in the last session we will share ideas for future publications to peer review them, and analyse them under the light of the already discussed questions.

This workshop is for artists that already have an interest in publication and printed matter.
