'Art Publications from Start to FInish' Online Course by Node Center


Art books and catalogues are increasingly important as a site where contemporary art carries out its discourses and activities. They are integral parts of exhibitions and indeed can be considered artworks themselves in the case of artist's books and editions.

This course takes the participants through various types of publications before looking in detail at each of the key stages of producing an exhibition catalogue, from looking at funding possibilities, sample publication budgets, contracts and permissions, as well as at ways of giving a publication a life through promotion and marketing before looking at distribution and where books end up.

Beautiful books are comprised of a myriad of finely tuned details all added at key moments in a book's creation. The course outlines each stage in the exciting and challenging process of publishing.

*Video conferences every Tuesday at 3pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
