Process and risograph print
Staying true to the concept of this cooperative exhibition, part of this editorial challenge was to develop a publication that truly engaged with the artist’s and participant groups in a creative and collaborative way. We decided to do the whole book in a printing technique that allowed for hands on plastic exploration while also making it possible to have a small print run. Together with the publishing, printing and bookbinding studio Cabeza de Chorlito, in Madrid, the book was entirely developed and manually assembled through risograph printing process, by combining 4 direct colours (Blue, Green, Orange and Black). This result is a truly unique book, with 60 pages of original visual works, as well as 80 pages of essays and documentation of the whole exhibition programme.
