ICI and INPUT Journal are pleased to announce a panel discussion on the occasion of the book release for INPUT #5: Blockhouse (Winter 2013). Under the curation of guest creative director Avelino Sala, “Blockhouse”—as a metaphor for a bunker—explores the capacity of artists to confront crisis, and to question the symbolic function of art and the role of creation during a critical moment of metaphorical entrenchment.

INPUT is an avant-garde nonprofit journal founded in 2009. The journal seeks to preserve the book form as a space for artistic experimentation and collaboration in the field of art publishing. For each limited edition, a guest art director is invited to approach the space of the book in a curatorial fashion, using it as a means to explore current cultural conditions without commercial interruption. INPUT has been featured at the New York Art Book Fair, The Armory Show, and Printed Matter.
This event is sponsored by Spain Culture New York- Consulate General of Spain, member of the network Spain Arts & Culture. Special thanks to all the participating artists and critics for their support.
