A Space for Radical Play: conceptual bookmaking against the global rise of the extreme right

This lab brings together a small group of artists, activists, journalists, poets, academics, and bookmakers from different countries and communities to challenge one another in order to better understand the global shift to the right, and to create work that can help reverse it.

Through the course of a year, we will meet monthly to discuss different theories and tactics of conceptual bookmaking as well as the political and material conditions of our different countries and communities, and to workshop books that incorporate what we’ve learnt. At the end of the year we will print final or working editions of the books and launch them in a showcase at SAVVY Contemporary as well as in performances/launches elsewhere in Berlin and in our home communities.

I am the concept writer and am currently building the group of collaborators and seeking funding.
