This talk will introduce the practical and conceptual role of STUART publishing platform and design studio at iniva, through mapping relationships to the gallery and the work of STUART Hall. The studio introduction will lead to more specific enquiry into access and distribution of published material.
The conversation will explore modes of distribution, circulation and access to printed matter and the shifting potential of the publication after print. The vital and transformative roles of bootlegging/book piracy will be discussed in addition to the ongoing potential of annotation and footnoting.
