why we are
The Future is an independent printer and publisher based in Amsterdam. We give small and/or experimental ideas, that could have a large impact, an opportunity to communicate through the print medium.
The print medium has always been successful — ink on paper still fascinates and inspires. However, the pervasive (corporate) model for printing and publishing, emerging over the last fifty years, has proven itself to be out of sync. What can a small printer and publisher contribute? We are often frustrated that interesting ideas / works cannot be considered by larger publishers or institutions. How can one make printed matter interesting, affordable and of high quality? Answering this question is at the core of The Future’s activities.
By initiating, collaborating, and co-creating, The Future publishes installations, exhibitions, and researches that inevitably lead us to print books, magazines, pamphlets, and the sort. Though we are based in Amsterdam, we collaborate and distribute internationally.
how we work
The following is our general strategy and approach to publishing and printing.
We publish our own works, works that we commission, but we are always open to good ideas/works. The Future sees its main goal as providing works that would not be published by large publishers an opportunity to be appreciated.
If you have an idea or a work that you think we would like, get in touch with us.
