Permanent Change, Karel Martens in conversation with Prem Krishnamurthy

Permanent Change, Karel Martens in conversation with Prem Krishnamurthy

No book is static. Starting at least from the moment of printing, a book begins its continuous process of change. Few people know this as well as celebrated designer, artist, and educator Karel Martens. The first award-winning edition of his groundbreaking monograph, Printed Matter (1996), was quickly followed by a reprint, then a second edition (2001), a third (2010), and now a fourth (2019). Each version updates, extends, and overwrites its predecessor, while claiming to remain the same. For this conversation launching the book’s newly expanded and re-titled edition, Re-Printed Matter—nearly 10 years in the making—Martens is joined by designer and exhibition-maker Prem Krishnamurthy. Presented by Roma Publications.

Recorded on September 21st, 2019. Recording courtesy of Blank Forms.
