Public Space With A Roof

Roma Publications

Roma Publications is an editorial publishing project founded by artist Mark Manders and graphic designer Roger Willems and is used as a platform for collaborations with a growing number of artists, designers, curators, writers and poets. Since their beginnings in 1998, Manders and Willems have created their own space in which they fuse art, design and curatorship, and succeeded to spread their works through various distribution channels as well as through shows in galleries and museums. Among the 98 publications released so far, their print runs from 2 to 150.000 copies and includes artists’ books, newspapers, catalogues, posters, postcards, DVDs and audio CDs. Roma published the PSWAR publications Beauty Unrealized (2007) and Passages Through (the Unfinished Monument) (2010)
