Pub ePub #4 Quarantine sessions : Mediums as thresholds for social distancing
✶ Oh, Kitty! how nice it would be if we could only get through into Looking-glass House! I'm sure it's got, oh! such beautiful things in it! Let's pretend there's a way of getting through into it, somehow, Kitty. Let's pretend the glass has got all soft like gauze, so that we can get through. Why, it's turning into a sort of mist now, I declare! It'll be easy enough to get through — ' She was up on the chimney-piece while she said this, though she hardly knew how she had got there. And certainly the glass was beginning to melt away, just like a bright silvery mist ✶
PUB and the GRA Bookbinding workshop are hosting a new series of online workshops and talks dedicated to everyone interested in experimental publishing as a way to communicate and share during times of isolation. A delocalized printing and binding network has been created and will be nurtured, informed, shrinked and expanded through the different sessions. We think we can question our ways of production while we are separated, and we are willing to share ways of doing that can make us feel each other, beyond the screen, or melting its surface, just like a bright, silvery mist.
For the fourth edition of PUB ePUB, we will explore the publishing medium as a threshold between worlds ✩ We understand publishing as a door or physical encounter with new realities, knowledge, and concepts that come into a frame to develop new ways of community-making. We are interested in highlighting the concept of transmission and borderline to formulate the idea of publishing mediums as liminal devices that facilitate transference to the otherness.
In PUB we are interested in possibilities of publishing as a mediator for new discourses, as a way of resistance and also as an artistic practice, ➳ This workshop will be developed in different online sessions by local and international guests from different fields whose body of work explores empirical ways of publishing, new narratives, content development and relevant artistic practices for the field, always focusing in delocalizing production and possibilities to produce during social distancing times.
