Publishing as Practice

Hardworking Goodlooking, Martine Syms/Dominica, Bidoun

Publishing as Practice

On the work of three contemporary artist’s-book publishers who have developed fresh ways of broaching politics in publishing

This book documents Publishing as Practice, a residency at Ulises—a curatorial platform based in Philadelphia—that explores publishing as an incubator for new forms of editorial, curatorial and artistic practice.

Over the course of two years, three publishers activated Ulises as an exhibition space and public programming hub, engaging the public through workshops, discussions and projects. Residents included Hardworking Goodlooking, the publishing arm of Philippines-based, social-practice platform The Office of Culture and Design; Dominica, an imprint run by Martine Syms dedicated to exploring Blackness as a topic, reference, marker and audience in visual culture; and Bidoun, a non-profit organization focused on art and culture from the Middle East and its diasporas.

The book features a preface by David Senior, an essay by Gee Wesley and Ulises Carrión’s 1975 publishing manifesto “The New Art of Making Books,” alongside documentation of the works produced.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Megan Liberty

Publishing as Practice requires us to rethink publishing not as a stale industry, but rather as a living, growing, and changing practice that encompasses maker and reader.

Rain Taxi Review of Books

Michael Workman

It is an art form, Publishing as Practice shows, that may now also serve as an appropriate instrument against those media and state figures for whom the violation of basic human rights is just another day at the office.
