Screening & Publication Launch—Brussels, 2016

24 November 2016 - Beursschouwburg, Brussels


On & For Production (2014 to 2016) is a printed memory of the On and For Production sessions, aimed at sharing the experiences that were gathered over the course of the initiative. The publication brings together a series of commissioned texts by artists, curators and researchers for each On & For edition. The authors—María Palacios Cruz, Gil Leung, Colin Perry, Werker Magazine, Émilie Bujès and Antonio Gagliano—were each invited to attend a complete edition of On & For, and to then translate into text, image or other formats what they saw and heard. Published as a whole, the pieces created now function as a diary of the initiative’s evolution over the last years. On & For Production (2014 to 2016) was launched on 24 November 2016. The editor, Anna Manubens, presented the publication launch at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels during the celebratory evening 10 Years Auguste Orts.
