DOCUMENT FOR THE FUTURE
As part of SE IMPRIME: EVERY CONSTRUCTION LOOKS LIKE A RUIN AT FIRST, a presentation of poster and ephemera coming from the Chilean popular riots from 2019, Pablo César Castro Zamorano presents a set of Risograph workshops in the exhibition space at Printed Matter, along with peers Terri Gordon-Zolov & Eric Zolov, and Sokio of New Latin Wave.
DOCUMENT FOR THE FUTURE is a hands-on workshop to visualize and print participants’ graphic and literary expression of ideas, desires and wishes for the world we want.
Participants will be provided with two simple materials, a marker and paper, to write and draw whatever they want in relation to the theme of creating a document that expresses desires for the future of our planet. These finished hand-drawn documents will then be reproduced on a Riso duplicating machine. The collected Riso-printed works of participants will then be bound into a publication during the workshop.
