|Mission||Bruna Press is a new independent, artist-run publishing house specializing in works at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental writing. Bruna Press Archive houses a community reading room and hosts events related to its collection and publishing program.|
bruna press is a new independent, artist-run publishing venture producing work at the corner, at the junction of contemporary art and experimental writing, among other intersections.
Taking inspiration from the possibilities of fusion, inclusion, interrogation, and paradox, the press recognizes that discourses entangle, activating printed matter for reflection of and expansion on this complexity. It seeks to be a home for unanticipated narratives, misfit questions, and perspectives that have been so far unsung and unclaimed, disregarded or omitted, glimpsed yet barely expressed. It hopes to give voice to the implicit, the hybrid, and the heterogeneous.
The bruna press archive features over one thousand titles ranging from rare, one-of-a-kind artist-made books to academic and philosophical volumes, poetry chapbooks, video art works, and vinyl LPs, among other formats. As a collection sited in a semi-public space, the archive is set up to encourage both personal and collective discussions and explorations inspired by the creative, experimental, and rigorous nature of its content. BPA also host events in the form of artist talks, screenings, readings, performances, publication launches, as well as reading and writing groups. The archive is open to all visitors free of charge during posted events and by appointment.
