ABOUT US

We are Claudio Pogo & Magda Wysocka, Berlin based artist duo. Our art practice is based on collecting and re-contextualising photography, found books, and other archival material in order to create new visual narratives.

Outer Space Press was created from a dream of being truly independent.

In Fall 2016 we´ve decided to combine our experience in photography, printmaking and publishing to create a space that will allow us to design, prototype and produce our publications completely in house.

While our studio is a place to develop and produce our personal work, it also opens a possibility for collaboration with artists who share the same interests in combining photography with the tactile and material qualities of print.

Claudio has a background in publishing and photography (running PogoBooks since 2010), and Magda completed her education in printmaking and design (MA degree in Printmaking at Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland).
