microutopías, Publication Studio Montevideo
microutopías is a Uruguayan publication studio, it is oriented toward art books, zine production, and risograph pressings rooted in micropolitical artistic works in the collective construction of new dissident narratives from the South. We explore the graphic resource, as a narrative element of the works, expanding its interpretations and the creation of meaning and subjectivities in the readers, in collaborative projects that are conceived as creative and reflective exercises of co-creation.
The studio shares publishing practices with PS Montevideo, part of the worldwide Publication Studio network since 2020. Member of "Lumbung of publishers", international publishing network formed from participation in Documenta 15 in Kassel, in 2022. Organizer of the Montevideo Art Book Fair since 2018.
Publishing as collective creation. Publishing as an exercise in political imagination. Publishing as a proposal for other ways of doing. Publishing as assumed and problematized privilege. Publishing as a decolonizing micropolitical performance. Publishing as the possibility of finding allies. Publishing as the generation of micro-utopias. Publishing as an artistic practice.
