publication revue is journal about artists’ books and publications. Providing a platform for discussion, reflection and creation to the many actors who make publishing an artistic practice. It also deals more widely with any other forms of books related to the art field. publication brings together artists, publishers, gallery owners, academics, printers, bookbinders, booksellers, distributors, etc. as personalities with diverse practices and intentions, all serving a common context.
publication it’s interviews, talks, and book presentations that give a close look at editorial projects. Considering the book as an alternative space of expression and exhibition, each issue offers carte blanche to young and more established artists who have the opportunity to show their work through pages entirely dedicated to their project. publication revue is the first volume of a multidisciplinary project aimed to give artists’ editions a “public” status, open, accessible to all, and for the use of all.
“[…] publication revue is the product of several years of reflection, nourished by key encounters and experiences. In the same way as its contributors, publication exploits the book format for its qualities.
Simple, it’s apprehended as an everyday object that we all know. It’s easily handled, transported and distributed. And for its many other features that are discussed throughout the journal, the book allows those who embrace it—including artists—to share and contribute to contemporary artistic creation.[…]” Excerpt from the editorial, issue one.
