Cairography Collective, Sarma/Oral Site & HaRaKa:
Touching publication

Touching publication. Independent publishing in art and its tangible agendas

"To publish is to touch", is how choreographer and editor Lisa Nelson explained the mission behind grass-root publishing as a necessity to reach out with print and thus to assure 'imprint' and impact when creating communities through readership and shared interest as a political gesture.

For this day-long presentation at Kunsthal Gent, Cairography Collective, Sarma/Oral Site and HaRaKa, three organisations with a collaborative history in various forms of publishing, join forces to make the different agenda's tangible behind recent publication projects, their formats, concerns and outcome.

These questions will be touched upon: how to break into consensus aesthetics, how to democratize access to publication tools and instruments, what defines the 'public' of publication when facing increasing censorship and commodification, and what is the role of orality within a polyphonic range of perspectives that cannot be thought of as writing only?

The curators set-up an ensemble of artist talks, panels, screening and an exhibition/display fueled by Cairography Collective, Sarma and Oral Site, with the participation of guests and the launch of a new 'publication'.
