Historically, publishing has been an essential platform for artists to disseminate their works, concepts, and aims. Evolving out of research during the seventh residency at the Oslo-based organisation PRAKSIS (2017), this publication addresses the interrelationship of art, publishing, and collectivity. It contains commissioned artworks and new texts, brief studies of experiments in art and radical publishing, and a bibliography of further reading. In addition, it includes reprints of texts on subjects ranging from collective production to licensing and archiving. Its non-linear, three-part format renders the performative dimension of our interactions with books visible and tangible.
