Pasar Página 2008
bookRoom will present and discuss our research project from the Arts and Humanities Research Council with the aim to create and manage a global research network concerned with the way photography, design and typography (and possibly other media) connect and collide on the page, both analogue and digital – with particular reference to artists books and magazines.
In order to discover what form this network should take we are holding a number of intimate (small) workshops at key events in different countries for invited guests to present ideas and works of interest.
Invited participants present a book or magazine or a work of art on the page work, either digital or analogue. Essentially this is simply to provoke debate about what might provide a framework, where we might locate the basis of the network and to find out if we have connections to explore through further collaboration.
Confirmed attendees at ‘Pasar Página’ conference are Sunil Gupta (Camerawork Delhi), Kathy Kubicki (Journal of Photography and Culture, UK), Pedro Vicente (Co-organizer of Pasar Página, independent curator and writer, Spain), Pep Benlloch (Universidad Politecnica de Valencia).
