About the Reading Group

The Publishing Forum: Reading Group is a joint reading group with Banner Repeater, X Marks the Bokship, and Arnaud Desjardin from The Everday Press, with a specific focus on publishing. Continuing with our enquiry into publishing, past, present and future, the reading group meetings will be held alternately at Banner Repeater and X Marks the Bokship and all are welcome to join us. We meet every two weeks meeting on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 9pm.

The Everyday Press was founded in 2007 by artist Arnaud Desjardin to publish the work of visual artists as printed matter.

Banner Repeater is an artist led reading room and project space, founded by Ami Clarke in 2009, situated on Platform 1, Hackney Downs railway station, London E8 1LA.

The reading room holds an archive dedicated to artists’ printed material and is home to Publish and be Damned’s public library.  It provides an important bibliographic resource that all visitors to BR can browse. The bookshop holds a selection of artists’ publications for sale. The project space has an ambitious exhibition programme of new art work installed in a highly visible and accessible location and a vigorous programme of talks, events and performance.
