The Press Room at Fringe Arts Bath

Deadline: 27/03/2017   Location: Bath, Somerset  

The Press Room seeks print-based artists for experimental live artwork inspired by propaganda, underground and anarchist presses. In this era of increasing digital surveillance and data collection could non-digital, ephemeral distribution of ideas become revolutionary again? Work will be generated live by participating artists. Comprising a venue with a group of artist-printmakers, and various manual and digital presses, media will be produced rapidly and collaboratively. Method and content will be devised by the artists in response to a brief to manipulate news and cultural stories at the time of the event and reference historic/cultural uses of print in propaganda and revolution whilst reflecting the difficulty of knowing ‘the facts’ in an age of over-saturation. Output will be distributed daily via visitors and street hand-outs throughout the festival duration, creating an outlet for the media produced. There is further potential for visitor participation workshops, open to artists proposals.
