Mycelium Media

Graduation project 2021-2022 by Mingus Janssen
Publication and performance

Mycelium Media is a publishing house that infiltrates and intervenes in archetypical printed media, in order to (re)introduce other-than-human perspectives. Changing focus every season, Mycelium Media’s output currently revolves around the issue of seed dispersal. As the Earth is warming up, plants are forced to move along with their respective climatic zone. Yet, they can not migrate by themselves and depend on other animals to transport their seeds to cooler climates. Current publications of Mycelium Media unpack this issue, focusing on several of the species involved, and adding their stories to existing newspapers, magazines and books.

During the Graduation Show, several correspondents of Mycelium Media will be roaming through the building of the Royal Academy of Art, acting as town criers announcing other-than-human news. Besides that, it is possible to visit the editor's office and browse through the published titles.
