Paper News is the quarterly newsletter by the network for independent publishing Drucken Heften Laden, which discusses and analyses the conditions and possibilities for independent publishing in the context of art and urbanism. Drucken Heften Laden derives from an eponymous exhibition, workshop and series of events at neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst (nGbK) in Berlin, which took place in January 2015. Since then, a small group of Berlin-based producers and publishers has gathered regularly. “We share experiences and resources, and build a discourse around production methods and values as well as the distribution of books and booklets." Publishing is always set in distinct time and space. Today’s diversity of media fosters hybrid formats between the analogue and the digital. We are interested to negotiate and sharpen our idea of what independent and self publishing means today. Drucken Heften Laden filters and disseminates information, and creates a public platform for exchange and discussion, accessible to everyone interested in such practice.
