FPACM* is a space for discussion and exchange of experiences that aims to contribute to the construction and/or development of reflective practices and knowledge about the musealization of contemporary art.

The series of sessions dedicated to Artists’ Publications proposes to problematize the artist book and, more generally, the artist publication as a category of contemporary art, focusing on its process of musealization / institutionalization by art libraries, centers and museums. Thus, it seeks to contribute to the identification and critical approach to issues raised during this process: the very concept of artist book; the management policies of collections of this nature; the narratives and the exhibition discourses; the physical and symbolic place occupied by artists’ publications in contemporary museums
