What is the role of art publishing today? How have artists adapted modes of publishing as a tool for their practice? How has the notion of artists’ publishing activity changed, given the ever-increasing amount of fairs and an ever-evolving number of book-related collections in contemporary art museums?

Publishing has developed, especially since the '60s, as a favorite site and medium for aesthetic and artistic experimentation. It has also become an alternative space for promoting unrestricted individual or collective discourse. New modes and approaches to publishing in an artistic context have been renegotiated in recent times. Publishing is a force of agency to be reckoned with, questioned, explored and debated in all its manifestations.

The project, like a toolbox itself, is composed of different parts, sections, and components. Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 19892017 opens up and unfolds through different propositions, partly by material exhibits on display, partly through the presentation of time-based events, as well as through offsite projects.

Publishing as an Artistic Toolbox: 19892017 is intended as a three-dimensional index rather than an encyclopaedic approach to understanding the multitude methodologies of publishing.
