Clinamen (6 titles)
 

Geneva
Clinamen is an independent, non-profit publishing house created in Geneva in 2013 by Mélanie Borès, Roxane Bovet and Lucas Cantori. Without becoming burdened by limiting borders, Clinamen moves in the domains of contemporary art. Its main intention is to valorize an ambiguous position, a position at the intersections of the web rather than at the center, to reject simplistic categories in order to see what ideas might come from meetings of people, disciplines, generations and practices. Clinamen's objective is to publish the unexpected and the essential within the vanguard of contemporary art and critical and curatorial theory.
In parallel, and since contemporary creation would not exist without its genealogy, Clinamen in also interested in the republication of texts and works corresponding to its editorial tentacles. The collection is titled “Mimic octopus” and, like the rest of the project, doesn't stop at borderlines.

This publication is part of an artistic and performative project conceived by artist Raphaële Bidault-Waddington and critic Sylvain Menétrey.
