DAI PUBLICATIONS is a collection of artist’s books issued by the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie (WT). The 2011 edition consists of 16 publications. In close collaboration with one or more guest authors, artists team up with designers to produce an artwork in the form of printed matter. From very diverse perspectives they reflect on publishing as a versatile medium. DAI and WT, both loacated in Arnhem are Master’s programs of ArtEZ, one of the major arts universities (Hogeschool voor de Kunsten) in the Netherlands. Gabriëlle Schleijpen , head of program at the DAI, founded DAI PUBLICATIONS in 2003. It began as an experimental and innnovative research and publishing platform aiming to address the specific process of arts books production, it is now an acclaimed editorial project. Since its inception more then 90 artist books have been published. As of 2006 the series is supervised by an annually appointed collection editor; for 2011, visual artist Rebecca Sakoun.
