Algo así como una mezcla entre la serigrafía y las fotocopias, la risografía es una técnica de impresión que se realiza con una máquina llamada duplicadora. Es relativamente barata y simple de elaborar, y utiliza tintas respetuosas del medio ambiente. Los acabados en riso son perfectamente imperfectos y ricos en color, y las posibilidades casi infinitas pues se puede imprimir desde zines y libros, hasta pósters y tarjetas de presentación. Esta técnica va de la mano con el espíritu DIY al alentar la libertad de imprenta y expresión, y fomentar la experimentación.

En México, encontramos impresiones en risografía para uso comercial por todos lados, quizás por su bajo costo y capacidad de hacer tirajes altos. Pero existe también una comunidad vibrante de impresores que han adoptado este proceso para uso artístico. (Por ejemplo, nos encanta el trabajo de los artistas detrás de Can Can Press, La Duplicadora, Aazufre, y Gato Negro Ediciones.)

Con Esto es Riso, el equipo de Kickstarter México quiere celebrar a estos creativos y llevar a nuestra comunidad global el arte de la risografía mexicana. Con esto en mente, nos emociona colaborar con #DealerMX y Macolen, y juntos darles un espacio a los impresores en riso mexicanos para hacer sus ideas realidad y amplificar su trabajo.

#DealerMX es un proyecto que impulsa propuestas creativas y abre líneas de comunicación entre ilustradores, artistas y proyectos editoriales para reunirlas en un espacio común. Además de ser una feria con espacio de venta, es un punto de encuentro, inspiración y convivencia entre creadores y el público en general. Los proyectos exitosos que participen en Esto es Riso podrán ser elegibles para ser parte del primer #PabellónDealer, una exhibición curada por el equipo de #DealerMX que tendrá lugar durante la Semana del Arte en febrero 2019 en la Ciudad de México.

Macolen es una imprenta ubicada en la Ciudad de México. En Macolen son profesionales de la impresión en risografía y estarán apoyando a los creadores de Esto es Riso con el expertise y los recursos para imprimir sus proyectos.

Estén o no familiarizados con la impresión en risografía, los alentamos a explorar este proceso creativo y apreciar su acabado singular. Si eres un creador mexicano con una idea en mente, te invitamos a publicar un proyecto de risografía con nosotros del 22 de octubre al 15 de diciembre.

Introducing This Is Riso: A Celebration of Mexican Risograph Art

Calling all fans of Risograph printing in Mexico and the world: from October 22 through December 15, Kickstarter will be highlighting projects by Mexican Risograph artists—and we’d love to see your work.

Risograph printing is done with a machine called duplicator, a mix between a copy machine and a silk-screen printer. The resulting prints are almost perfectly imperfect and rich in color, and the possibilities are endless—Riso can be used to create anything from zines to books to posters to business cards. Environmentally friendly, relatively cheap, and easy-to-learn, Risograph printing has a long tradition with the DIY community.

In Mexico, Riso is widespread in commercial use, likely due to its low cost and high print run capacity. But there is also a vibrant community of printers who have adopted this process for artistic purposes. (We love the work of Can Can Press, La Duplicadora, Aazufre, and Gato Negro Ediciones, for example.)

With This Is Riso, the Kickstarter Mexico team wants to celebrate this community and bring the art of Mexican Risograph printing to our global community. And with this in mind, we are excited to collaborate with #DealerMX and Macolen to create a space for Mexican Risograph artists to bring their ideas to life and amplify their work.

#DealerMX is a project that supports creative ideas and the collaboration between illustrators, artists, and publishers, and gathers them in a common space. It is a commercial art fair that allows artists to showcase their work while also encouraging the interaction between creators and the general public. Successfully funded projects participating in This Is Riso will be eligible to participate in the first #PabellónDealer, an exhibit curated by the team behind #DealerMX which will take place during Art Week in February 2019 in Mexico City.

Macolen is a Mexico City-based print shop and studio. The team at Macolen are experts in Risograph printing, and they will be supporting This Is Riso creators with the expertise and resources needed to print their projects.

Whether or not you are familiar with Risograph printing, we encourage you to explore this creative process and marvel at its unique possibilities. If you are a Mexican creator with an idea in mind, we invite you to launch a Riso project on Kickstarter between October 22 and December 15. Throughout that time we will promote This Is Riso projects in newsletters and on social media, and will be sharing resources for Mexico-based Risograph artists.
