With each new issue of Fabricate (Fabric of) Art • Fabrique de l’Art, you have something to do through out the year. The printed book (730 gr., 28 x 20 cm., 192 pp.) is to be read and look at slowly, by small bits, a few pages at a time. And then, once stimulated, your mind works, wanders, derails or launches into multiple paths. A few days later, you may return to the book, resume your exploration of the words or the images, make leaps, create links. And you will not stop, year-round, until the next issue: a way to continuously celebrate the arts as they are fabricated today. Fabricate (Fabric of) Art • Fabrique de l’Art is published by Trimukhi Platform with the support of Institut Français in India. It is printed in Kolkata, India, both in English and French. It involves philosophers, writers, sociologists and artists from all over the world.
