Content

Self-publishing or Independent-publishing:
MATERIAL is specialized in publications without the involvement of an established publisher. The author therefore controls the entire process, including the design of the cover, the number of copies, the interior, the distribution, the marketing and public relations.


Self-publishing is not limited to books, but includes pamphlets, brochures and fanzines, as well. The quailty of these works varies considerably. MATERIAL also offers space for other forms of art (performances, concerts, workshops and exibitions).
