Searching for the News

Introducing: Project 3

A printing press stands resolute on a desk. The crisp clatter of printing stamps is heard; the printing blanket is pulled back. Whispers of pages, shuffled between unknown hands. 

A British-US-Danish collaboration brings three visual artists – David Armes, Jens Jørgen Hansen and Megan Adie – together around a literary time-capsule. Their practice-based piece takes historical newspaper stories, explored from the perspective of letterpress printing and artists’ books.
