Teaching and publishing: The Publications Project 2009

The Publications Project is a one year course on publishing and a collection of artists publications issued by the DAI/Dutch Art Institute and designed in collaboration with the designers from Werkplaats Typografie. The 2009-10 edition is directed by artist/curator Delphine Bedel, who is Associated Professor at the DAI.

The Publications Project is an experimental research and production platform that aims to address the specific process of artist books production, from concept and design to distribution. Designers and artists are invited to team up in couples to develop one project, in close collaboration with an author. The format of this diverse collection can varies from magazine, essays, books, and artist editions to performance artefacts. Through very diverse perspectives the artists and designers reflect on publishing as a versatile medium. The limited editions are distributed through artist’s performances, bookshops and artist book fairs.
