Drucken Heften Laden discusses and analyses the conditions
and possi­bili­ties for independent publishing in the context
of art and city (politics).

Drucken Heften Laden derives from an eponymous exhibition,
workshop and series of events at neue Gesellschaft für
bildende Kunst (nGbK) in Berlin which took place in January 2015.

Since then a small group of mainly Berlin-based producers
and publishers gathers regularly.

We share experiences and resources, and build a discourse
around production methods and values as well as the distribution
of books, ebooks, booklets, and other publics,

Publishing is always set in distinct time and space.
Todays diversity of media fosters hybrid formats between
the analogue and the digital. We are interested to negotiate and
sharpen our idea of what „independent“ and „self“ publishing means today.

Drucken Heften Laden filters and disseminates information,
and creates a public platform for exchange and discussion,
accessible to everyone interested in such practice.
