Exhibition — Museums Press at KRETS


You are invited to Museums Press’ exhib­i­tion WAKA WAKA WAKA at KRETS in Malmö, open­ing on May 18th, 2013

Museums Press is an inde­pend­ent pub­lish­er cur­rently based in Glas­gow out of their book­shop and pro­ject space, Good Press. Since the inaug­ur­al release (Museums One) in 2009, they have con­tin­ued to release a series of com­pil­a­tion style box sets, numer­ous books and count­less zines as well as con­trib­ut­ing to vari­ous exhib­i­tions and pub­lish­ing events. Through a belief that a pro­cess will occur and nat­ur­ally form when act­ing col­lab­or­at­ively with com­munity in mind, Museums Press have formed last­ing rela­tion­ships with many of their fel­low artists – act­ing as facil­it­at­ors for inde­pend­ent art activ­ity.”
 — Museums Press

Dur­ing the exhib­i­tion at KRETS, they intend to exhib­it mater­i­als dir­ectly relat­ing to Museums Press activ­it­ies since their begin­nings. WAKA WAKA WAKA acts to present a sub­ject­ive view of the pro­cess of inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing with a walk through of the objects gathered, shared, swapped, retained and nat­ur­ally pro­duced to cel­eb­rate the pro­cess of work­ing with oth­ers.

Along­side this extens­ive archive, a new pub­lic­a­tion by Nick Ainsworth will be developed, notes towards an essay on com­munity and fair­ness will be updated, and Good Press will provide a selec­tion of zines and books from artists and pub­lish­ers in the UK, as well as titles from Museums Press related prac­ti­tion­ers.
