Talk organised by the Head–Geneva University of Art and Design.


This talk brings together three among the most promising emerging figures and structures at work in Switzerland. The three of them have in common to have recently been recognized for giving a new take on printed matter: either through experimental design, or by the development of alternative publishing strategies, or through a critical economy. The discussion is articulated around three different approaches, in order to shed light on these new positions.

First, the relationship with history, archival material and memory of artists’ books allows the speakers to share ideas on their approach of the design of books,on interpretation and the notion of transmission.

The second issue deals with the crossover in between visual arts and graphic design, curating and publishing, through the presentation of their respective alternative editorial strategies.

The third one is based on economics: how books are or will be produced in the future, how they are or could be distributed. Is also discussed how books are or should be stored, documented or even branded, in order to reach their actual or potential audiences, locally, and around the globe.
