Bonington Gallery is delighted to present Publishing Rooms, a commissioned exhibition concept by Andrew and Iain Foxall of Foxall Studio, London.

Over the past decade, mass-publishing has moved from the print houses into the hands of anyone owning a smartphone. Publishing is no longer a privilege, but an involuntary expression of our multiple identities and allegiances.

Exploring themes of self-expression and posterity, Bonington Gallery will become a facility for self-publishing.

Set within a constructed environment that combines the appearance of an abstracted newsroom with the functionality of a photo booth, visitors will be invited to interact with technological and analogue devices designed and implemented by Foxall. These tools for self-publishing will provide opportunity to further explore our obsessions with mediated forms of self-expression.

Referencing and subverting everything from zine culture to the selfie phenomenon, Publishing Rooms will provide opportunities to go beyond the prescribed presets found in our social media outlets, generating new variables for the production of self-imagery and the subjective understanding of ourselves.

Suitable for

  • Any age
