Apart from developing and producing printed matters we also consult people, do workshops, lectures and classes on Risography, distribution and (self-) publishing as (artistic) practice.
With our 10+ years of experience we provide professional and individual guidance for a range of people — from leading art institutes and artists, to bands and brands; quickly, sustainable, eco-friendly, and customized to your needs and budgets.
We make it
Visits on appointment only!
We understand publications as free and safe spaces in which self-determined political and aesthetic questions are negotiated and social communities are defined through publishing as an (artistic) practice.
The publications never refer only to themselves, but reflect critically, ironically, sometimes strikingly and sometimes enigmatically on art, society, feelings, objects, egos and always great comrades-in-arms from music and art whose work Gloria Glitzer celebrates and wants to say thank you to them with her publications.

Because of our artistic and political practice we understand we make it as a space that confronts us with the roots of self-publishing. The urge for self-enactment, visibility, accessibility and democratization of art, politics and information. But also the low and no budgets, and the need for accessible machines and collaborative processes. And how limitations leads to the consequence to use the Risograph as the choice of reproduction.
Beside all said our space is also dedicated to experimentation and testing alternate approaches to publishing, to rethink the use and concepts of printed matters but also enable individuals as well as communities in their urge to express their thoughts, ideas and discourses.
