“The practical function of 12 networked publications” will open on Saturday, September 14, as a part of a “FREEbook” event, which will focus on democratic and open practices of artists’ publishing.
The exhibition, which has been conceived as an active process that will produce a catalogue, includes small publications, booklets, excerpts, files, and reproductions of the books displayed following the instructions of the artists; it is a program to create and incorporate a medium.
The arrangement is a basic layout composed of 4 bookshelves that visitors can browse, 3 tables in the middle, 1 text on a wall, a wooden displayer with  four “totally connected”  artist’s books, two posters, one chart.

This platform is an ‘open’ structure, an in-progress medium, with sheets, plates, pictures and notes. It will also include an updatable and changeable publishing system, as well as a working site for a “free book”.
