《P_PAL》是由 abC(art book in China)創辦的雜誌。這個有些像顏文字的代號,是留給每一位讀者自定義的填空題。 “P”字頭的命名與書、紙張、印刷、出版有關,"PAL" 則是希望與所有做書人、愛書人成為夥伴朋友。我們將用這本雜誌展開與全球優秀的專業書友們深入對話,解讀他們創作背後的工作方法與觀念思考。這是一本關於藝術書和做書人的雙語雜誌,特別關注大中華地區的藝術自出版面貌。

本期《P_PAL》的專題將目光投向更廣泛的社群,積極地去想像一種“共同的工作與生活”。接過“大笨蛋”松本哉手中遞過來的名為“行動”的酒杯,一群藝術家、策展人、活動家們正在廣州小洲村的客廳里為新空間的落成而碰杯,像呼吸一樣自然地維繫著鬆散卻緊密的合作;繼承了海盜電台的各地社區電台,以音樂為救生艇,與聽眾們共同完成日復一日的微小抵抗;706青年空間曾基於“共同生活”創建民主試驗場,試圖重寫私人與公共的邊界。

P_PAL is a magazine founded by abC (art book in China). This somewhat emoticon-like code is a blank space left for each reader's own definition. The use of the letter “P” in the title is related to books, paper, printing, and publishing, while “PAL” represents the aspiration to become friends and partners with all those who are involved in book-making and love books. Through this magazine, we aim to engage in in-depth conversations with outstanding professionals from around the world, interpreting their creative methods and conceptual thoughts. This bilingual magazine focuses on art books and book creators, with a special emphasis on the self-publishing scene in Greater China. 

In this issue of P_PAL, the focus shifts towards a broader community, actively imagining a sense of “collective work and life.” Passing on a glass named “Action” from the hands of “Big Idiot” Matsumoto Hajime, a group of artists, curators, and activists gather in the living room of Xiao Zhou Village in Guangzhou, toasting to the completion of a new space, naturally maintaining a loose yet close collaboration, akin to breathing. Inheriting the community radios of Pirate Radio, they use music as a lifeboat, participating in day-to-day acts of resistance alongside their listeners. 706 Youth Space, built upon the concept of “shared living”, has established a democratic experiment to redefine the boundaries between private and public.
