The act of making something public
This session addresses the methods, tools and implications of publishing activities.
— What does the publication does/mean? And how is it going to exist/circulate?
— How does it achieve its aspirations through form?
— How do content, editorial concept and design come together?
— How to think publishing as complement and supplement to working practices?
— In which terms can ‘making public’ act as a tool for bringing common shared interests and concerns?
The BB allows the production of books and publications in small editions and specific manipulations of paper and cardboard. All processes are always done entirely by hand and pushing the limits of what is possible.
Next to being a technical workshop, the BB functions as a cross-departmental point in our institution. We believe the publishing practice is an emancipatory process. We support project such as: PUB.sandberg.nl, Radio Rietveld and Rietveld Journal.
