Viaindustriae pubblica libri d’artista, libri di ricerca sperimentale, studi territoriali, cataloghi di mostre, cataloghi monografici – tra le altre forme di editoria, utilizzando utilizza la pratica editoriale come strumento di produzione, didattica e sperimentazione artistica. I libri hanno formati diversi che non seguono gli standard di una pratica editoriale canonica ma piuttosto le esigenze e le specificità di ogni progetto. Viaindustriae considera la pratica editoriale come atto di traduzione che richiede una trasformazione dell’opera d’arte o visiva in una nuova forma, dove l’opera stessa sviluppa nuove possibilità e significati; per questo ogni libro diventa una piattaforma autonoma e non solo un’occasione di trasferimento di contenuti.

Why I Make Documentaries. On Observational Filmmaking (2023), I am Gonzo. My Dirty Italian Zines Fuck Serious Scientific Books (2021), YES YES YES Revolutionary Press in Italy 1966-1977 from Mondo Beat to Zut (2020), Manufatto in Situ 10 landscapes: documentary / inventory / utopia (2017), Hermann Nitsch atlas.

Viaindustriae is a  cultural association and publishing house based in Foligno, PG, Italy. Established as a non-profit association in 2005, Viaindustriae promotes projects and artistic research raging from museographic displays, site-specific installations, public actions, artist residencies and publications of various formats among other innovative strategies. In the last five years, publishing has become one the most established activity of the association. Viaindustriae publishes artist’s books, experimental research books, territorial studies, exhibition catalogues, monographic catalogues – among other forms of publishing. Viaindustriae uses the publishing practice as a tool for production, education and artistic experimentation. The books have different formats that do not follow the standards of a canonical publishing practice but rather the needs and specificities of every project. Viaindustriae considers the act of publishing as an act of translation that requires a transformation of the work of art into a new form, where the work itself develops new possibilities and meanings; for this reason, each book becomes an independent platform and not just an occasion for the transfer of contents.
