This talk will bring together Artist Kathrin Böhm, RCA Tutor (Research) Dr Gerrie van Noord and RCA Associate Lecturer Dr Rosie Ram to discuss the role of publishing, editing and writing as part of an artistic practice.

Artist Kathrin Böhm will be in conversation with RCA Tutor (Research) Dr Gerrie van Noord, who recently co-edited a book on the artist’s work (Art on the Scale of Life). The event will be chaired by RCA Associate Lecturer Dr Rosie Ram. Together they will discuss the role of publishing, editing and writing as part of Kathrin’s wider artistic practice, which includes a wide variety of collaborations. They will consider how different modes of publishing not only capture projects and events but are also sites of articulation and activation themselves.

Kathrin Böhm

Kathrin Böhm


Kathrin Böhm works across interdependent realms of cultural production, including the art world. Her research, writing, organising and constructing supports collective forms of (re-)producing public space, taking back the economy for people and the planet and enabling a new trans-localism that acknowledges the rural. Kathrin teaches and publishes regularly and as a researcher contributes to the wider topics of New Economy, Usership of Art and the Production of Public Space. In 2020 she stopped initiating new projects and engaged in a process of ‘composting’ what she had produced as an artist so far, in order to make ‘fertiliser’ for evolving long-term infrastructures such as The Centre for Plausible Economies c/o Company Drinks and Myvillages’ Rural School of Economics, which includes partners such as Scottish Sculpture Workshop, the Van Abbemuseum and ruangrupa’s ruruhaus in Kassel. Co-edited publications include Icebergian Economies of Contemporary Art (2020), The Rural (2019), Learn to Act (2017) and The International Village Show (2015).
