Carl Wagan | MEDIA TO GO

Carl Wagan:

Profile PhotoTHE CARL WAGAN BOOKMOBILE is a traveling campervan of cosmic proportions. It is a gallery, printshop, studio, library, reading room, classroom, and community project—all contained within a 1988 VW Westfalia. 

The Carl Wagon promotes active engagement with book-based cultural activity such as self-publishing, zine-making, screen-printing, and bookbinding. Subtitled “The Spaceship of the Imagination,” Carl is partly a loving homage to the innovation of astronomer Carl Sagan whose passion for dreaming continues to inspire generations of thinkers. 

Carl Wagan is an experiment in radical pedagogy—bringing the strategies, materials, ideas and dialogues of independent publishing to a wide variety of audiences.

The Carl Wagan is the project of artist Shannon Gerard and first developed as an extension of her Nano Publishing course at OCAD University.
