Bruno Ceschel Lecture on Self Publish, Be Happy

‘Self Publish, Be Happy’ is an organisation founded by Bruno Ceschel in 2010 with the aim of celebrating, studying and promoting self-published photobooks.  Self-publishing has not only been recognised as a powerful cultural and economic phenomenon, but its army of belligerent and creative publishers and photographers has proven that they are here to stay and shake the art publishing world.

Experimentation, boldness, love for the printed object and a desire to be heard are some of the traits manifested in the photobooks Bruno Ceschel has chosen to discuss; the many incarnations of contemporary self-publishing.

From the stapled fanzine assembled in a student bedroom to the traditionally printed photobook, these publications not only reshape our understanding of the medium, but offer exciting and sometimes radical ideas. Ceschel will also discuss his project Self Publish, Be Happy and present his latest community-lead project Self Publish, Be Naughty, a collection of intimate, flirtatious, sexual, raw and explicit images laid bare in a book.
