Viaindustriae is a publishing house, visual art research centre, archive and exhibition space based in Foligno, PG, Italy. Established as a non-profit association in 2005, Viaindustriae promotes projects and artistic research raging from museographic displays, site-specific installations, public actions, artist residencies and publications of various formats among other innovative strategies. In the last ten years, publishing has become one the most established activity of the association. Viaindustriae publishes artist’s books, experimental research books, territorial studies, exhibition catalogues, monographic catalogues – among other forms of publishing. Viaindustriae uses the publishing practice as a tool for production, education and artistic experimentation. The books have different formats that do not follow the standards of a canonical publishing practice but rather the needs and specificities of every project. Viaindustriae considers the act of publishing as an act of translation that requires a transformation of the work of art into a new form, where the work itself develops new possibilities and meanings; for this reason, each book becomes an independent platform and not just an occasion for the transfer of contents.
