DEARS is a print magazine for transversal writing practices at the crossroads of art, poetry and experimental writing. It brings together authors and writers from different backgrounds and constitutes a dedicated platform for texts escaping the usual genres and disciplinary boundaries.
DEARS promotes the exploration of new forms of language as a way to foster new forms of living together, and emphasizes the growing relevance of trans- versal writing practices in this respect.
DEARS is a collaboration by Delphine Chapuis Schmitz, Robert Steinberger and myself.

Performance as Publishing was an experimental artist-led project by Nicole Bachmann and Ruth Beale which operated between 2011-2019. As a vessel for manifold artists’ practices, it encompassed research into the relationship between words, images and the voice, the politics of ‘who speaks’, and physical presence vs digital proxies. Performance as Publishing was DIY and DIWO, developing and presenting performance-based projects inside and outside the institution. Each project defined a strain of practice emerging in London, the UK, and internationally, as can be seen on the Events pages.
