About Beam Editions
In 2017 Beam Editions was established to produce serious but accessible books on contemporary and modern art. Illuminating that the work of the world's most interesting artists can change the way to think and see the world, and hopefully for the better. Beam Editions' books are topical, addressing issues of our time as well as presenting timeless work by artists that will always be relevant. Beam Editions produce artist books, monographs and research projects that are beautifully designed and celebrate the craft of the art book.

Recent projects by Beam Editions include Dear Nature by John Newling – a call to reconnect with Nature; Etiquette of the Arms Trade by Jill Gibbon – an exposé of the international arms trade; No Telos by Emma Cocker and Danica Maier – a call for a 'slow' approach to art-making and life; the first monograph on Ed Moses, one LA's greatest abstract painters; Sounds Like Her - Gender, Sound Art and Sonic Cultures, a non-patriarchal look at the history and current practices. Beam Editions is based in Nottingham, England.


About Rab-Rab Press
Rab-Rab Press is an independent discursive platform based in Helsinki. It publishes the annual Rab-Rab: journal for political and formal inquiries in art, and special publications advancing non-institutional thought. Rab-Rab is against using art as a pretext for a fictive triumph where “in the end, everything always works out” (Brecht). So far Rab-Rab has published seven numbers of the journal on the special topics of language, noise, forest, and remembering as future; artist's book with linocuts on the political history of paper industry in Finland, a pamphlet on Zaum poetry, and the translation of Viktor Shklovsky’s children’s book on cinema; Rancière’s unpublished early text on Karl Marx; and the first English translation of Russian Formalist and Futurists writings on Lenin’s language. Rab-Rab Press is based in Helsinki, Finland.

Currently, Rab-Rab Press is working on the research and publishing project called ‘The Forms of People's Revolt’ which will result in a series of publications. The forthcoming publication “Free Jazz Communism: Archie Shepp–Bill Dixon Quartet at the 8th World Festival of Youth and Students in Helsinki 1962” including an interview with Shepp, reproduction of hard-to-find early texts by Shepp, archival materials, and theoretical texts contextualising free jazz in the light of global decolonial movements and leftist anti-racist organisations as opposed to normative Cold War narratives.


SixtyEight Art Institute is an artistic/curatorial research organization looking to uncover, develop, and further exchanges between artists and curators and their creative labor. The exhibition How we let Venice flood and other stories is the eleventh installment of our two-year program of exhibitions, called Modes and Notes on the Local, which is kindly supported by Københavns Kommunes Råd for Visuel Kunst and The Danish Arts Foundation.
