Are you ready to collaborate with us? 

An imprint of msdm studio, 
msdm publications  
explore mobile strategies
of display & mediation, 
art publishing meeting photographic research: the book medium offers
open, mobile spaces

potentially archival and narrative
for a recombinatory reading experience. 

Integrating photographic
and book art processes,

msdm publications  are guided by
artistic research and hybrid publishing formats that combine the hand-made
with digital tech. 

Curatorial projects held at msdm studio
and partner sites consider exhibition
formats specific to the display of
book art, photobook installation
and social publishing.
