This site is an open-ended and ongoing, public domain repository of writings, research, interviews and information, collected and gathered by James Wrigley during an MA in graphic design and art direction. The overarching theme of this repository is responsibility, both from the creator and the publisher; examining topics such as ethics within arts, media and publishing, looking at the use of social and political ideologies within the creative and distribution process, andexploring areas of popular culture, individualism arts, education and language. The aim of this repository is to be both informative and useful, but to also act as a background, a base layer, to be the bottom line towards a new manifesto to all friends, artists, writers, curators, critics, photographers, illustrators, galleries, institutions and collectives.

This site is produced with the intent of collective sharing of information and opinion, using a number of social networks and platforms to compile information, articles and research shared from users across the world. As such every reasonable attempt has been made to identify owner of copyright. Any errors or omissions brought to my attention will be corrected as soon as possible.

Zak Kyes On A New Book Economy

Hans Ulrich Obrist: What are your unrealised projects?

Zak Kyes: My big unrealised project is a new book economy, which is a proposal for a new model of publishing within the context of the cultural field. While many collectors and patrons are comfortable with the idea of supporting the production of art objects they are reluctant to support design processes, even given their increasingly fertile relationship with contemporary art practices. The idea here would be to establish, with a patron, a platform for the production of publications. Part of the edition would be housed in the physical structure of a private library/collection co-conceived with an architect, and the rest would be distributed through the cultural economy, available in publicly available spaces such as exhibitions and galleries.
