This booklet is part of a growing collection of artists publications issued by the Dutch Art Institute (DAI), produced in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie and edited by artist/curator Delphine Bedel. The 2009 edition consists of 15 publications by different artists, varying from printed matter, book and artists edition to performance artefact. For each project, the artist teamed up with a graphic designer from Werkplaats Typografie, and invited a guest author to contribute. Over the period of one year, various aspects of publishing—concept, editing and design, production and distribution—were addressed, while the artists were invited to see the publication as process, as a way of generating work or conversation, rather than just representing it.
