Book and zine workshop "Void Impromptu"

Book & zine workshop with Myrto Steirou and João Linneu 
(Applications closed)

6 days || 01.05 - 06.05.2019 || 12 participants 
ISSP space in Riga


During this 6-day workshop, Void will edit, create and produce together with the selected artists a unique publication for each one. We will be exploring the entire process of transforming the artist’s voice into a printed matter: from the storytelling to book design and physical production. We are looking for photographers who have a coherent body of work and would like to present it in printed form. A proper photobook dummy will be executed for those with a large project that fits in this length of publication. Zines will be made for those with a more simple body of work. 

Up to 12 participants will be selected and 12 publications will be created from the scratch during the 6 days of the workshop. 

Founded in October 2016 by João Linneu (BR/PT), Myrto Steirou (GR) and Sylvia Sachini (GR), Void is a non-profit organization engaged in alternative publishing, exhibitions and education. With focus on photography, Void has an alternative approach to it, exploring unorthodox design, communication and printing techniques to promote the medium. During the last two years, Void has published over 35 books and publications, collaborating with international photographers and institutions like Athens Photo Festival, National Museum of Contemporary Art of Athens, Hydra, Gomma Books & Grant, Istanbul Photobook Festival, Lucy Art Residency, LensCulture, PHmuseum among others.
