facebook_event_202491493579801

The first event to bring together Berlin’s top Risograph studios, in a day of exhibitions, workshops, perfomances, book launches, music, and parties celebrating everybody’s favourite DIY print machine.

The following Berlin studios will share their work:
– Colorama
– Drucken 3000
– Die Brueder
– Pogo Books
– Outer Space Press
– Inkwell Press.

There will be a series of workshops and live printing, with designers and artists preparing work in real time – lots of limited edition prints to give away.

Luca Bogoni Design Studio will curate and produce a riso-printed wallpaper installation with guest artists: Bene Rohlmann, (…).

There will be the launch of the English version of the book ‘Risomania’, the first to cover the ongoing Risograph renaissance.

There will be a live mimeograph printing/poetry reading performance by poet Martin Jackson. Martin Jackson’s ‘tutorials’ is a poetry collection written, edited, translated and distributed live on Google Docs. Many of his poems address issues of creative production and writing technologies, including what might be the only poem ever composed about the Riso.

And there will be an auction of Risograph prints.

DJs Stella Zakri and Die Soon will be playing during the day and night, as well as more special guests.
