Discussion with David Schulz, Herman Zschiegner and Bruno Ceschel
In conjunction with the in-store exhibition of the ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative
Thursday, June 16, 2011, 5-7 pm
Printed Matter will be holding a reception and short conversation with group members David Schulz and Hermann Zschiegner, along with BrunoCeschel (Self Publish, Be Happy), discussing the creative and productive implications of self-publishing and PoD distribution.
“ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative features upwards of 60 publications representing the recent production of the cooperative’s 28 members. Taken together, the collection of books illustrate how PoD services have become a powerful platform for book artists who–with little or no upfront costs, and free of other regulative forces—are able to quickly produce and release new work that both matches their artistic intent, and exists in supply that responds directly to demand. The rising popularity and promise of the decentralized model suggests that PoD will continue to be a tremendous resource for artists’ book-makers.”
The ABC exhibition will be up until June 30, 2011.
Printed Matter is located at 195 Tenth Ave, between 21st and 22nd street in New York. [map]
