“UNDERGRONDE + COMMENTS ON RAW CARDBOARD”
Undergronde (a play on words which combines “underground” with the French verb "gronder”, literally “to rumble”) is an initiatory trip through the world of fanzines, graphzines and desktop publishing, focusing on artistic practices that have federated authors, as presented in the eponymous documentary film by Francis Vadillo (Mattt Konture, l’éthique du souterrain, Mattt Konture, ethics of the underground).
Commentaires sur carton brut (Comments on raw card-board) is a collective book that brings together a number of protagonists of the “rumbling underground” that Francis Vadillo describes. They react to the film, talk about their practice or simply illustrate it. Printed on bulky grey cardboard moulded to the size of a DVD box, this object is meant to complement the DVD.
