Full PRINTed publication here
PRINTed is proposed as a small-format fair dedicated to the field of singular publications, understanding this to include all kinds of editions that contemplate the idea of the book in the broadest possible sense.
The aim is to offer participants an event and an interdisciplinary context, where participants can communicate with each other as well as with a broader public. An arena for the publications generated through experimentation and research within the confines of the studio to be disseminated further afield, in the professional setting of a book fair. The hope is to build bridges, to provoke enriching encounters and exchanges, and to generate a network of shared interests that will expand through the contacts established in these fairs for the development of future projects.
PRINTed is generated from within an educational environment, with the aim of generating links between different centres from around the world where teaching
and research is undertaken in the fields of printmaking, editions, and design. It also aims to generate content and activate dynamics for the production of prints and in this sense proposes activities that go from the 24 hours print marathon carried out during the second edition of PRINTed (24 hours printing people) to workshops led by guest artists and visiting production centres.
