Peripheral Visions

Towards a trans(l)national publishing culture

Research Lab in Malaga


And this apparatus is all the better, the more it leads consumers to production, the more it is able to turn readers or viewers into participants.”

Walter Benjamin


Research Lab

organised by eipcp/transversal/subtextos

January 31st to February 06th, 2023

Casa Azul, Malaga / Spain


The Research Lab develops a specific approach to dissemination and distribution in the fields of editing and publishing. Content is not disseminated through marketing here, but as dispersion and diffusion in social contexts. Ranging from reading circles to hybrid cooperation, new formats between physical and online activities emerge. Thus, reading not only means perceiving and understanding texts, but rather – according to the Walter Benjamin quote of the extensive title – changing the production apparatus on different levels: producing new texts immediately out of readings, producing posters, booklets or other printed matter through easy and accessible ways of printing with rhizomatic riso-printers, producing audio-files and podcasts, producing instituent socialities, going far beyond individual reception and reading experience. When consumers become producers, target groups turn into dividual producing machines.
