I.F Publications is a publishing platform established in Barcelona in the autumn of 2015. IF is an initiation of action, of reflection, of invention and dialogue between thought, poetry, art, and experience.
I.F Publications seeks to activate the interstitial zones of knowledge where an undisciplined thought arises: where the boundaries of fields become evident and new ways of seeing and thinking appear.
Each publication is intended to be the result of a collective process, of a discussion between form and content, between the publisher, the author, and the reader. For IF, a book is not merely the support of a finished work but another stage in the creation and investigation processes. This project emerges from the urgency of making accessible certain content that we consider crucial to circulate.
Faced with the commodification of culture, we advocate independent publishing as a space for critical thought and reflection.
I.F — stands for International Friendship, is a platform for generating encounters around the act of publishing; an ecosystem of friends who explore the process of publishing as a methodology to generate relationships that can potentially lead to the sharing and circulation of content. A territory in which to explore the dynamics of the signs and their political dimensions, alongside printed matter and its relations to critical thinking; an improvised choreography of collective actions in the stream of day-to-day frictions and events.
