mobile strategies of display & mediation
msdm is the acronym for mobile strategies of display & mediation: a nomadic
project space for artistic and curatorial research, social publishing and learning.
paula roush is an artist and curator whose practice is primarily photography-led and manifests itself in multiple formats such as installation, publications, curatorial and participatory projects; her most recent research has focused on the live-work method articulated around the msdm house—studio—gallery, a nomadic project space with its own imprint— msdm publications—a micro-publishing agency encompassing photographic and book art processes.
paula is also Senior Lecturer in Art Photography and Photobook Publishing in the School of Arts and Creative Industries at the London South Bank University, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Workshops, seminars, and presentations are an integral part of msdm, working closely with non-profit organisations and independent artists to document, exhibit and publish their photographic archives.
Established as an imprint of msdm studio, msdm publications are
a small-scale model of photobook publishing, integrating photographic and book art practices
a nomadic project space for artistic research and curatorial experimentation
