The Justseeds Cooperative is a decentralised network of 30 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental and political stance. With members working from the U.S, Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. They believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action. To this end, they produce collective portfolios, contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for justice, work collaboratively both in and outside the co-op, build large sculptural installations in galleries, and wheatpaste on the streets all while offering each other daily support as allies and friends.
Founded in 1998, and originally the graphics distribution project of Josh MacPhee, Justseeds made the transformation into a worker-owned cooperative in 2007 – the original network being largely in place through past collaborations and friendships. They operate an online store and wholesale distribution center, an active multi-voice blog detailing current art and resistance projects around the world and a small gallery space in Pittsburgh shipping office that highlights member work.
