On April 7, 2013, a screen-printed publication was produced during a Fluxus-style atelier in Tokyo organised by Self Publish, Be Happy and Goliga. For two days, 11 photographers had a silkscreen workshop facility to create and print their photography as part of a limited-edition publication, Compilation Tokyo. The handmade publication captured the spirit and energy of the contemporary photographic scene in Tokyo and embodied a new exciting generation of artists.

On April 30, 2013, artist Charlie Engman worked in situ at the Aperture Foundation in New York to create a new artist zine, remixing Compilation Tokyo. Engman cut apart/re-photographed/digitally modified photographs in order to remix and create an entirely new body of work. These new works were printed and photocopied on site to create Compilation Tokyo: Remix, a signed and limited-edition artist publication, that filters and plays with the original material injecting some NYC electricity.

Charlie Engman currently lives and works in New York City.

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online.
