Lost Coast Culture Machine is an artist-run contemporary art space & handmade paper mill in the remote coastal town of Fort Bragg, California, founded in 2010 by Anne Beck & Dietmar Krumrey. LCCM hosts exhibitions, performances, talks, films, collaborative projects & mini-residencies, with a focus on interdisciplinary & sustainable creative practice. The programming is in part supported by sales of paper made by hand in the traditional European method in the adjoining mill. LCCM was featured in a 2011 New York Times piece on the Mendocino Coast & in a recent article on the West’s Best Beach Towns in Via Magazine.

Beck & Krumrey produce fine art papers & stationery using locally harvested plants, including highly invasive pampas grass, and locally collected rag – clothes & linens un-saleable at thrift stores & saved from the landfill. Situating an environmentally conscious paper mill in Fort Bragg has historical context: Georgia Pacific, one of the world’s leading paper & pulp producers owns the entirety of Fort Bragg’s coastline: a 415-acre paved, polluted, pampas-grass-strewn & full-of-possibility expanse where the former redwood mill operated from 1857 – 2002.
