Library Of The Printed Web

Printed Web 1, launched in January 2014

Library of the Printed Web is a physical archive devoted to web-to-print artists’ books, zines and other printout matter. Founded by Paul Soulellis in 2013, the collection was acquired by The Museum of Modern Art Library in January 2017. The project has been described as β€œweb culture articulated as printed artifact,” an β€œarchive of archives,” characterized as an β€œaccumulation of accumulations,” much of it printed on demand. Techniques for appropriating web content used by artists in the collection include grabbing, hunting, scraping and performing, detailed by Soulellis in β€œSearch, Compile, Publish,” and later referenced by Alessandro Ludovico.
