Welcome to Tekstin talo!

UA Miniresidencies: Paola Jalili

A sharing, a demo, a discussion, an outcome – Paola Jalili’s residency period for UA Miniresidencies culminates in a public event in Tekstin talo where she shares some of her process and work. Free admission!

During her residency, Paola Jalili will set up a publication making station where she will work on a new publication under Ei Mainoksia, Kiitos! (EiM,K). With this, she aims to visibilise the work she does as a publisher, and share book-making tools, methods, and conversations around publishing with others. She will be working on the second issue of the Junk Mail Series, an EiM,K! project that explores alternative distribution methods within the publishing field. During her public sharing, people can join and see Paola’s work process, consult some of her publications and other selected books around publishing, chat while she works, or join her making the publication (drawing, collaging, writing, stamping, folding, binding, etc.). The publication is made with non-specialised equipment or software, and with materials and tools that one can find at home. Everyone is welcome to join the public events, no prior experience required.
