As the first independent art book publisher in Skopje, North Macedonia established back in 2016 PrivatePrint aims to publish and support artists’ books and emerging artists that work outside the established institutional frames. From the very beginning, parallel to its publishing program a versatile nonprofit program developed including exhibitions, promotions, international presentations, blog and online activities etc. This program represents the start of PrivatePrint Studio as an art and exhibition space, which was then officially established as an association in 2018 in order to further develop its mission. The Studio’s activities aim to create a platform for research and presentation of art books, design and other media of expression in contemporary art seen in a larger socio-cultural context. It provides better visibility and interconnection of artists and artistic practices in the local context as well as exchange of ideas internationally.
Therefore we need your support to maintain the running of the studio and open up more possibilities for emerging artists to develop and present their work.
