This publication constitutes a stage in an ongoing research-based project initiated by the Greek contemporary artist: Yota Ioannidou. Published in 2009, Stratagem became the first moment where she made her exploration about economic relocation public. A collection of texts, interviews and imagery gives the reader an understanding about the process that moves the production of goods to Eastern Europe and Asia.

The Publications Project is a collection of artist books issued by the Dutch Art Institute and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie. DAI and WT are both master programmes of ArtEZ. Gabrielle Schleijpen, course director of the DAI, founded the Publications Project in 2003. It started as an experimental and innovative research and publishing platform aiming to address the specific process of artist books production, from concept and design to distribution, and is now an acclaimed editorial project. Artists and designers are invited to team up in couples to produce an artwork in the form of printed matter, in close collaboration with one or more guest authors (historians, novelists, sociologists, artists, philosophers, etc. ).
