PrintRoom is a presentation space and shop dedicated to artists’ publications based in Rotterdam. Since 2012 PrintRoom runs a risography stencil workspace where artists, designers and other interested individuals can take part in workshops or print their own projects.
PrintRoom started in 2003 as a travelling and growing collection of artists’ publications. In 2010 the initiative acquired a fixed address in Rotterdam (Schietbaanstraat 17), where it has become a vibrant hub for promoting and selling publications by artists, designers and small publishers from all over the globe. The PrintRoom collection comprises various material: from lusciously designed, full colour publications to small flipbooks, and photocopied zines. The space hosts talks, presentations, book launches, and workshops that explore artistic strategies of independent publishing.
PrintRoom’s programme of 2018 is kindly supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Mondrian Fund.
PrintRoom has also received funding or is supported by CBK Rotterdam, The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), the City of Rotterdam, department of Culture (dKC), Stichting Volkskracht Rotterdam, OCCA (Norway), the Estonian Cultural Endowment, The Dutch Institute (Beirut), Woonstad Rotterdam, Antalis Nederland, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil (Mex), among others.
