Artist-run project and programme of exhibitions, workshops and publications. Founded by paula roush in 2016, it aims to provide a research framework for photographic art as publishing practice. Throughout the history of the project there has been a questioning of how artists, photographers and publishers can experiment with and develop critically reflexive forms of exhibition practice for photobookworks. Projects have taken on various formats ranging from installations and presentations in institutions, and the production of editions through commissions and collaborative formats. This work has been shown nationally and internationally at All Inked up Kentʼs International Artist Book & Print Event UCA Canterbury & The Brewery Tap Folkestone, KHiO Publishing Studio Oslo National Art Academy, PRINTed #4 Singular publications EINA Centre Universitari de Disseny i Art, UAB Autonomous University of Barcelona and Arts Llibre Worshop ESDA LLotja Escola d’Arts i Oficis de Barcelona, Spain.
