PUBLICATIONS

Work.Master puts a strong emphasis on artist's books and different forms of individual and collective book production and publishing practices. 

  • A-SIDES, A cosmology of audio editions by artists around the Arc Lémanique region. Paperback, 223 p. Edited by Laurent Schmid and Roxane Bovet. With John Armleder, Francis Baudevin, Mathieu Copeland, Jonathan Frigeri, Stéphane Kropf.
    The publication was conceived in the context of a research project on artist's records in the Lake Geneva region and the history of artistic encounters and exchanges generating sound productions. The produced works, as well as the methods of exploration of this international network, formed the basis of this anthology of artists’ sound publications.
    A-sides gives an insight into the conditions and motivations that give rise to the creation of sound recordings as an art form and explores the ambiguity of the relationship between the current technological context, which is moving towards dematerialization, and the persistence of sound practices distributed on tangible recording media. Co-published with Clinamen 2020, design by AMI.
  • In parallel, a series of vinyl records was produced. (with Hannah Weinberger, Karl Holmqvist, Anne Le Troter, and John Armleder & Parker Williams)

  • LA RADIO SIAMO NOI  In the context of a revived interest in the medium of radio, the collective and self-organized project LapTopRadio (Lab.zone with Laurent Schmid) explored the possibilities and the limits of an irregularly, unexpectedly and sporadically broadcasting internet radio in the perspective of fine arts with a specific approach—the studio followed the participants, musicians and events, and not the other way round. It thereby created a new basis with a as yet hardly known potential, which the project intended to probe. This was made possible thanks to the co-operation of all the participants and co-producers, speakers, interviewers and authors of the texts published here: Delphine Bedel, Francesco Bernardelli, Donatella Bernardi, Yann Chateigné, Alfredo Cramerotti, Nadia EL-Imam, Jonathan Frigeri, Kenneth Goldsmith, Lars Bang Larsen, Quinn Latimer, Andrea Marioni with Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Federica Martini, Ceel Mogami de Haas, Angelo Plessas, Laurent Schmid, Joël Vacheron with Tex Royale and Alexis Milne, Willem van Weelden, Giovanna Zapperi. POD and paperback, 265 p. Design by B&R, Bern. Co-published with LINK Editions, 2019.
    Together with the book there was also a vinyl [Abacus, with Ergo Phizmiz, Scanner, Delmore fx, Felix Kubin, Jealousy Party,  Johnny Haway] and a audiocassette [A Message to the international Hacker Community by Goodiepal]  produced. Co-published with Razoff.
