Publishing as an artistic practice

Sun 25 – Sat 31 August 2019
Collemachia, Italy

PLACE, PEOPLE AND TIME is a new group Residency devised by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in partnership with My Bookcase. It is offered for creative practitioners working with printed matter and publishing as an artistic practice and for those who have a strong interest in this area.

Focal Points of the Residency:
– Publishing as an artistic practice
– Independent publishing
– Collective knowledge
– Individual practice
– The book as a platform for encounters
– Artists’ Books
– Natural environment

The group Residency will provide a partially-structured and hands-on programme. Alongside individual practice, the Residency will have a focus on knowledge exchange, creating opportunities to learn from each other.

The Residency experience is designed to stimulate new ways of thinking and experimentation through production, research, learning and presentation. Residents will work collectively and individually. The Residency is devised around the idea of the book as a platform for creative encounters. By listening, looking and making residents will investigate image, text, typography, object and context relationships. In addition to each Resident’s individual work, there will be a final outcome in the form of a collective publication with ISBN that will be published by The Museum of Loss and Renewal.

The Residency will have an offline engagement with international relevant experts and like-minded initiatives that will provide bespoke content, expanding the Residency in time and space.

The Residency is located in Collemacchia, a small village within Italy’s National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, a protected area of exceptional significance and beauty. Engagement with the natural world begins on the doorstep and the stunning mountainous landscape offers an excellent environment for reflective practice. The ancient, undisturbed and extensive terrain holds a rich and complex history visible in the area’s architecture, customs, agricultural lands and forests. The Museum of Loss and Renewal fosters strong links with the local community which is highly supportive of the Residency Programme.
