msdm a nomadic house-studio-gallery for photographic art and curatorial research, an expanded practice of the artist's book, photobook publishing and peer-to-peer collaboration created by contemporary artist paula roush

msdm [mobile strategies of display & mediation] Publications, a London-based independent publishing house-studio-gallery, is dedicated to the exploration of speculative posthumanist storytelling at the crossroads of artistic research, photographic practice, and experimental publishing.
The core activities of msdm Publications encompass the creation of publications, exhibitions, and workshops, making it a transdisciplinary platform for artistic expression. Noteworthy among our initiatives is the Pageturner workshop [here +], distinguished by its peer-to-peer collective program. This unique approach serves as a robust support system for artists in the development of their self-publishing practices.
Founded in 2004 by paula roush, an artist and educator with a passion for andragogy (independent adult learning), msdm Publications has carved a niche for itself in the dynamic intersection of various creative disciplines. paula also contributes to academic research at the London South Bank University's School of Arts and Creative Industries and is a member of the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image [here+].
