Publishing as Method
This book explores art publishing today, particularly small-scale publishing practices in Asia. With this focus, it attempts to contextualise the increasingly important publishing practices in contemporary art within Asia’s historical and regional contexts.
The book features a diverse range of interviews and essays contributed by various publishers, artists, curators, collectives, distribution spaces, and designers. The interviews conducted since 2020 particularly shed light on the complexities and possibilities of artistic practices in the post-pandemic era.
This book is also part of a larger research project of the same title that Mediabus, a publishing collective in Seoul, has been conducting since 2020 and has been realised as an exhibition, publication, and a documentary film. - text adapted from book.
