Hackers & Designers was invited to participate to this panel discussion on Thursday 14 November.

Leading up to Printing Plant Art Book Fair 2019, Looiersgracht 60 and Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten collaborated in a series of four special events prior to Printing Plant Art Book Fair - Amsterdam 2019. On four Thursday afternoons in October and November, various guests with different perspectives (and from different backgrounds) engaged in conversations on independent publishing and artist books within the artistic practice.

No.3: New Modes of Production

This event provided an insight into experimental and alternative modes of bookmaking, publishing and distribution. Contemporary socio-political circumstances are demanding a radical re-orientation; how can publishing respond? The panel looked towards the future, discussing how rapidly developing technologies are opening up new avenues, as well as how to work productively and collaboratively across multiple disciplines.
