SCHLASS Édition : SUPERPOSITION
Passion by crossing disciplines and heated to white we shiv with sharp works! Schlass éditions is : / design research around the editorial object / artists with sharpened skills and curiosity / experimentation that hits the spot! Schlass Editions is 7 members with their own universe ready to collide! This gathering of independent Mulhouse actors was born from a desire to work together around collections and themes specific to each one. This small comity that we form is in charge of questioning each project and helping its realization with our own skills. From their conception to their realization, the projects are printed and shaped as much as possible in the workshops of the members of SCHLASS. The goal is to create and promote our vision of the book, in a micro-publishing and art-publishing environment that is in constant bloom.

We are committed to the local production of our editions, because of the range of production possibilities already present within SCHLASS, but also because of the collaboration with local printers. We are committed to paying the authors fairly, being ourselves by our practice, confronted with this problem daily. What better way to start the work of our publishing house than to launch our first book: SUPERPOSITION The artist's book "SUPERPOSITION" is the result of the association's first collaboration. We wish to share the approach of Ouissem Moalla young visual artist; his work is dissected and highlighted through the pages by the artist / designer Iva Šintić. ... months of research / manipulations / exchanges / several formats / three types of binding / two models, were necessary to find the form that fits the reading. This unique object will unfold in your hands in several parts : - The analysis of this system of visual creation, base of the work of painting and drawing of Ouissem Moalla. This part will be printed in silk-screen printing. This principle of printing by the superposition of layers of translucent colors, enters in logical resonance with the presented system. -A selection of images from this work in digital printing. Faithful reproduction of paintings, tarot cards, weavings, notes and sketches. Now, it is ready to be printed! Ouissem Moalla : Born in 1990 in Stockholm (Sweden), Ouissem Moalla is an artist from Sfax (Tunisia). He pursues a self-taught path, after brief studies at the Haute École des Arts du Rhin and apprenticeships with practicing artists. Based in Mulhouse, he distributes his work in France, Germany and Japan. He develops concepts of language related to mysticism and western hermeticism that he experiments with through artistic expression. His productions materialize in multiple aspects and are organized in series, each one constituting a path of investigation in response to the problematic he raises. This research is fueled by popular culture and philosophical developments around the image and memory.
