made and published: ProCreate Project
This collection represents an investigation into the relationship between mothering and creative practice.130 artworks that are part of the ProCreate Project were edited and published as photozines.
Lara Gonzalez completed her practice-based MA at the School of Arts and Creative Industries, LSBU.
Her practice consisted of building an online hybrid library fe et ex – made and published meant to function as an online library or repository of artists’ pocket-sized books. It offers the possibility to download (for free) works from a PDF format into material books. The website, together with the PDF editions also provide instructions to bind the books in a non-adhesive way. Her dissertation examined the photobook in relation to artist’s books, publishing technologies and publishing cultures.
Since her graduation Lara has used made and published to archive and publish the ProCreate Project [in partnership with the Women´s Art Library - Make - Goldsmiths College, University of London.] ProCreate Project is a platform that provides practical help and financial support for artists, enabling them to continue producing work during pregnancy and motherhood. The artworks by artists in the ProCreate Project were edited into a collection of photozines, that either document or translate the works into the artist’s book format.
