In the early 1970s the Detroit Printing Co-op was open to anyone who was willing to learn to operate typesetting and offset printing machinery. The first English translation of Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle was printed there. In this talk, Aubert will present recent projects and discuss the relevance of cooperative printing in Detroit in the 1970s.
