PRINT SCREEN: New Publishing Now Presented by Emile Zile

Presented by Emile Zile as part of Melbourne Design Week & Melbourne Art Book Fair

Melbourne artist Emile Zile hosts a podcast series and live event for Melbourne Art Book Fair / Melbourne Design Week.

Looking at the state of alternate publishing and new forms of distribution, PRINT SCREEN will host discussions on the widespread disruption of traditional media channels and the accelerating digitisation of shared cultural consumption. Via podcast and live forum PRINT SCREEN will open up a vital discussion on the new waves of publishing and promotion that are located in simultaneously public and private realms.

What are the possibilities for new forums of cultural dispersion? Is there any escape from software after Covid? Where is the new gatekeeper? Who is making new claims? Is this moment of destabilisation a significant opportunity to reimagine publishing?


Emile Zile is an artist, filmmaker and performer. In the darkly comic and critical re-use and re-encoding of media broadcasts, communication protocols and online platforms his work reflects a distributed humanity, a yearning for transcendence and the limits of language. Building on a background of live and single-channel video, his work utilises site-specific performance, portraiture and filmmaking to capture the traces of humanity within an accelerating digital culture.
