The Impossible Library invites artists, writers, independent publishers, researchers and designers to apply for a two-week residency in the Hamburg-based project space. The Impossible Library is an inventory of over 1000 independent magazines and zines.
The objective of the residency is to address publishing in relation to bigger social questions, such as: What is subversive publishing? What role do archives play in digital capitalism? How do publics emerge through people, publications, places? What can alternative models to entrenched cultures look like: niches, gaps, present, future?
The chosen residency fellows will be asked to research, experiment with and formulate new artistic approaches, with the aim to develop creative projects, public programs and publications in relation to the Impossible Library. The accommodation, travel and work stipend of the fellows will be covered by the residency.
Deadline: April 30, 2020
