Publications

Visible started in 2010 as a publishing project, with the publication of the book Visible. when art leaves its field and becomes visible as part of something else (Sternberg Press, 2010). Following this, in 2013, we took another step in the sphere of publishing, by assembling a free, digital, flexible workbook series that could allow us to continue presenting the emerging research, gathered around the visible network, thereby shedding new light on them. In trying to open up modest and unprecedented confrontation spaces where new bestowals of what art can affect and transform the social body, we started commissioning texts around our shortlisted projects at every edition of the award to different experts from fields related to each project. Next to this here you will find texts that our chief curators have written in dialogues with different protagonists of our network.
