PUBLISHING THE PUBLIC(ATION)
WHAT IT MEANS TO MAKE SOMETHING PUBLIC





The word ‘publication’ implies its relation to ‘public’. Looking at the act of making something public, we also see distribution and circulation of knowledge to be accessible by anyone. It makes us see a publication as a tool for social and political practices that can be used to forward significant issues that could motivate our society.



‘Publishing’ a ‘publication’ with this notion in mind, it’s a democratization. The content doesn’t need to be controlled by the printer or institution or even the outcome of publishing doesn’t have to be a printed publication. Posting on Facebook, organizing workshops, or teaching could be a publication as long as something is distributed and circulated.
