SPRINT—Independent Publishers & Artists' Books Salon

Non-Profit Artist-Led

10th edition  |  25–26–27 NOVEMBER 2022  |  Milano


⤷ Milano Re–Mapped Summer Festival  |  Pirelli HangarBicocca


For the first edition of Milano Re-Mapped Festival, Pirelli HangarBicocca has selected three curatorial and production projects active in Milan – Archive, SPRINT and Standards – which over the years have distinguished themselves for the array of their research and the capability to blend an international outlook with a special attention to local communities, artists, and audiences.

Monday 11 July, from 7 PM, we presented a line featuring Virginia GentaMuna Mussie, YaYa Bones, Collletttivo, Alessandro Guerriero [Atelier Alchimia] and Marta Zanoni. The evening ended with a musical program curated by Standards, with a concert by Chillera and the synths of Afrorack.

The audience was welcomed into an environment to take in accents, whispers and reverberations in an investigation in which multiple medias and languages emerge around publishing, performance, sound and words. A constellation of ineffable convergences, worlds and ways to discover alternative perspectives and multiple voices.

As part of the festival program SPRINT is inviting Collletttivo to extend Apfel Grotezk type by equipping it with a series of neutral glyphs, to make the typeface an even more porous communication tool for everyone's needs, now supports inclusive ligatures for Italian orthography.
