Urgent Publishing After the Artist’s Book: Making Public in Movements Towards Liberation was a performative talk given by artist and designer Paul Soulellis during the the 2021 Contemporary Artist’s book Conference, hosted by the Center for Book Arts during the 2021 Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair.

In the introduction to this talk, Paul states:

“Publishing has always been political, but has it ever felt as urgent as it does right now, in the global distress and intersecting crises of the past year? There’s a desperate need for new language to express publishing’s renewed urgency and importance. We need new forms of discourse to get at what it means to create and share content outside and against capitalism, at ever-rising levels of crisis. (…) How do we characterize our current condition of collective making and sharing? What is urgent publishing today? Drawing upon decades of radical, anti-capitalist thinking and collective action, including specific moments of interference within the movements towards Black, feminist, and queer liberation, let’s turn away from old, legacy publishing models towards something new: an ethics, craft, and politics of urgent making.”
