Distance Over Time: Publishing as a creative practice and communicating ideas through various formats.


Distance Over Time

Distance Over Time, founded in 2014 by James Mckinnon, is an independent publisher based in Berlin. I work closely with artists to create beautiful limited and collectible books, zines and objects.

Distance Over Time was inspired by the writings of John Baldessari, especially by his idea of distributing art through publishing: By publishing an artist's work in the form of an affordable book, the art can be owned and treasured by a wider audience.

Distance Over Time is about making art less of an unattainable commodity, it's about making ideas and creativity accessible.

We are interested in publishing work that is inquisitive, thoughtful and conceptual; whether it’s painting, photography, writing or otherwise. Every published work is unique and always the result of a collaborative working relationship between Distance Over Time and the artist.
