Verónica Gerber Bicecci, visual artist / writer and member of Tumbona Ediciones in conversation with curator Fabiola Iza.

Tumbona Ediciones is a publishing collective comprised of a group of artists based in Mexico City that since 2005 have tried to resist Mexico’s progressive cultural impoverishment through creative means. Tumbona shelters genres unattended by major publishing houses – essays, aphorisms, short stories, flipbooks and other small-format and anomalous visual publications. It bets on books with aesthetic vitality and intellectual risk, impure books that can go from one artistic manifestation to another.

Verónica Gerber Bicecci, is a visual artist who writes and is a member of Tumbona Ediciones, and will be discussing both the advantages and challenges Tumbona has faced due to its particular constitution with Fabiola Iza, curator of To unmap the terrain: Artists’ publishing in Mexico at Banner Repeater.
