︎Founded in 2019 by a group of students and lecturers at Birmingham City University, BAAAD Press is an independent platform dedicated to the production of publications by artists and designers. Our vision concerns contemporary creation and is based on non-didactic and diversified methods. This freedom and flexibility allows the artists to realize different concepts in all mediums, which are then made public through our website or different events, such as the Duplicate publishing fair and the Night School. The BAAAD Press also offers interviews with the artists about their work and a weekly digest with more inspiring aspects from the Art world. Find our weekly digest on the baaad_21 Instagram page.
