As part of this exhibition and with the support of the Institute for the Humanities, Corine Vermeulen and creative collaborator Nina Bianchi returned to Medellín to produce the Obscura Primavera catalog in 2014. As part of their ongoing collaborative publication project Detroit Mini Assembly Line, the Medellín community became part of the process, and was invited to participate in the writing, designing, and onsite production of the publication. The catalog was assembled and stitched by hand.

Detroit Mini Assembly Line activates local manufacturing resources and transforms publishing into a more accessible and engaging practice, recognizing that positive relationships can be shaped through shared labor and that work sheds light on opportunity. Since its inaugural installation in 2008, Detroit Mini Assembly Line has produced 8500 books to date, using tools ranging from the industrial to everyday.
