The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies produces and commissions printed matter such as zines, publications, screen-prints, ectceteras. One of the aspects of the program is the acknowledgement of different methods of art making and art exhibition. Printed matter and multiples are considered an exhibition alternative, another way to diffuse ideas.
Fixed Idée is a collaborative publication produced in the framework of a workshop by Dorothée Dupuis (Founder/editor in chief of Terremoto Magazine) with the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies students on January 11-12, 2018, by invitation of Aeron Bergman. Printed in an edition of 100 copies.
The Low-Residency MFA will commission artists to create limited edition art works, printed matter, and ephemera. The works will be distributed for free via art spaces, events, by mail, and Low-Residency students will distribute them in their home communities.
The Spring 2018 edition are three silkscreen posters by three artists: Noor Abed (Jerusalem), Mauro Cerqueira (Porto), and Henrik Plenge Jakobsen (Copenhagen).
