Daido Moriyama, A la carte, Paris, Fondation Cartier, 2016, 21 x 29,7 cm, silkscreen and photocopy, 44 pp, Signed open edition (Printing show).
A pioneer of artist self-publishing in Japan, Moriyama tries to keep the DIY spirit intact by organizing printing show. In these performances, the artist is present but he isn’t doing much. Indeed, participating are invited to create their own zine by choosing photographs of the master, and arranging them in the order that please them. They will then be helped by assistants to staple their unique zine. Moriyama is sitting at the end of the chain to sign each of these unique publications.
