Printed Matter: Talia Linz

Talia Linz’s presentation also questioned whose needs are being addressed in systems of knowledge production and dissemination. Coming from an institutional perspective, Sydney’s Artspace, Linz acknowledged that publishing often involves compromising funding from other areas of programming, however she believes independent spaces have a responsibility to rethink existing models. Artspace explored this with 2015’s Volume Art Book Fair which employed an accessible model and featured Book Machine, a project which allowed participants to create and instantly publish books in an informal, collaborative environment. Linz observed that the ubiquity of digital also means a turnback to these analogue forms, another reminder of the book’s relationship to the body.
