We Are Publication is an artists’ group that tests innovative forms of contemporary art publishing. Originating at Kingston School of Art’s Contemporary Art Research Centre in 2015, the group consists of a changing constituency of current and past PhD candidates, staff members and invited contributors who share a sense of the possibilities inherent in collaborative research.
We Are Publication is a shape-shifting laboratory. Its multi-layered publishing experiments relay the group’s interactions and exchanges. In flux and iterative, the group’s configuration as well as its outputs, signal divergent approaches to jointly conducted research.
