Publishing Acts is the result of a “temporary editorial office” experiment held in Pula, Croatia, 1-3 June, 2017, designed to produce instant, open-ended socio-political imaginaries about the city. The publication itself is conceived as a “social or institutionalizing object,” whose existence, nature and shape intrinsically refer to the existence of a collaborative and agonistic process of knowledge production. With the launch of such a project it can instigate further engagement with a specific topic and create a link between the discourse both before and after publication.

The experimental publication serves as an occasion to think about possible further development of the initiative, and as a catalyst for the Future Architecture - DAI-SAI pamphlet series on potentially radical transformations of built territories and the architectural discipline.

More context and background for the project is available in Rebekka Kiesewetter's essay From Exclusion to Autonomy: Publishing as a Spatializing Act published in Amateur Cities.
