Program Description

The processes of publishing and editing since the emergence of social networks have brought a profound transformation in the established collective, encompassing academia, universities, and political organizations. In artistic practice, self-publishing emerges as a way to democratize other fields, processes, and questions that may not necessarily be reflected in the artwork, or that should be considered artwork themselves. Self-publishing collapses the authority of academia and its recognized collectives to circumvent the mandate of "publish or perish." PotentA____ Editorial Residency is launched as a space for collective collaboration and experimentation, primarily dedicated to spanish-speaking and spanglish content. The aim is to collectively explore alternative spatial possibilities within the editorial architecture, challenging the conventions of art circulation and its practices from the perspective of artistic practice and self-publishing.
