Unformed Informed (Publishing) – Miss Read

Unformed Informed (Publishing)

Unformed Informed (Publishing) is a publishing studio within the arts, with a special interest in artists who explore language from a literary perspective, as an instrument, or construct. The outcome is the result of a close collaboration with artists. The framework of each project is determined by the collaborations within which they arise. These frameworks not only determine the document itself, but also the conditions under which they are being published.

Unformed Informed (Publishing) is operated as a sole proprietorship under Rianne Zijderveld. We create books in collaboration and discussion, based on mutual agreement, trust, and care. Unformed Informed is not profit-driven nor a profitable endeavor.

A page from Pointing At Things Is The New Writing by Jeannette Slütter a series of three booklets. It features the works of artist Jeannette Slütter and includes a transcription of a conversation with fellow artist Francesca Hawker (BE). The series will delve into the concept of oeuvre, inviting the reader to participate in a dialogue about what it means, how it’s defined, and how it evolves over time.

Codex is a collection of stories, that stem from a project that focus on the transcription and interpretation of beetle galleries in a pictographic language rich in myth, legend and folklore. Could beetles carve their stories in the woods?

Codex is part of the publication series Publishing Dialogues. With the series we want to create a space for small scale experiments with texts and/or images. Not to publish a definitive, immutable object, but to make a suggestion. One that is open to improvement, revision, call-and-response, iteration, or even a full negation.
