How is artists’ printed matter collected and archived and how can such collections and archives be active, lively hubs of information and education for the medium, serving the specialist as well as the general public?
January 10, from 8pm, PrintRoom, Rotterdam, invites three key players – Charlotte Cheetham, Arnaud Desjardin, David Senior – in the field of independent artists’ publishing for a talk titled The Living Collection on collecting as an activity that moves beyond the limits of creating an archive. Each is a specialist in collecting printed matter and/or information on printed matter and archiving this in some physical or virtual format. Each in their own way extends their role as a collector by creating public projects and situations with and within the medium.
