IMPROMPTU?
WHAT THE HELL IS It?


Impromptu is a workshop conducted by Void.
Working with photographers who have a complete body of work and would like to present it in the form of a publication (zine or book), Void edits, creates and produces together with the artists a unique object for each one. As the name implies... real-time. No tricks, no cards on the sleeve, no formulas.


Past events

Void performed 3 Impromptu workshops so far:


01 – 06 MAY ‘19 - At ISSP - Riga, Latvia

6 days - 12 participants at ISSP space in Riga

During this 6-day workshop, Void will edit, create and produce together with the selected artists a unique publication for each one. We will be exploring the entire process of transforming the artist’s voice into a printed matter: from the storytelling to book design and physical production. We are looking for photographers who have a coherent body of work and would like to present it in printed form. A proper photobook dummy will be executed for those with a large project that fits in this length of publication. Zines will be made for those with a more simple body of work.

12 participants will be selected and 12 publications will be created from the scratch during the 6 days of the workshop.
