  • Voix plurielles: new issue published

    We are very pleased to announce the new issue (14.2, 2017) of Voix plurielles (APFUCC), edited by Professor Catherine Parayre, also editor of ti< and faculty at the Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture of the MIWSFPA.

    It includes contributions on different artistic expressions (literature, theatre, cinema, comics -bande dessinée-, visual arts, music) and addresses several interdisciplinary issues related to the hybridation of genres and techniques, as well as to epistemological crossovers and comparative work.

    The authors and artists presented in this issue come from very different backgrounds: French actors, a Kurdish author, Canadian authors galore, authors of comic books from Japan, Peru, France, etc. and, of course, Belgium. Yes, we have Astérix and Omar Sy together in this issue!

  • The book as printed space – concept and printed work;

    based upon an image by Bernhard Cella

    Walker Cultural Leader Series workshop:

    Medium/Media: All media that can be captured on paper. A book making workshop with Bernhard Cella.

    The objective of this workshop is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the medium “book” as a production process, and for individual participants to produce their own small publication or part of a larger one. This workshop focuses on the current status of the printed (analogue) book and associated questions. Participants will design and develop their own publications, from the initial idea through to the finished product.

    During recent years the development of desktop publishing and digital printing has promoted a significant resurgence of micro editions of artistic publication projects. In contrast to industrial manufacture, micro editions facilitate a high degree of interaction between production and conception so that technical processes may influence decisions on content.
    Referring to current examples and historical models, we will analyze various approaches and forms of production for our project. These include analyzing pictorial language, formats and varieties of paper, text production, typography and typesetting techniques. In small groups, we will discuss concepts and prepare mock-ups for various book projects – prototypes that allow a different way of thinking about the space that is a book.
