Urgency Reader 2: Mutual Aid Publishing During Crisis, which is edited and produced by Paul Soulellis, began with a 10-day open call that was announced on March 18, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The call for work was motivated by two desires:
1—to collectively document some of the extraordinary conditions, dynamics, and emotions being experienced while in quarantine, and 2—to provide some relief to artists and writers impacted by the crisis, in both creative and monetary forms. How might publishing as artistic practice embody communal care?
The result is an amazing collection of materials, including a contribution from The Making Public Collective! Free download here.
