Since 2007 Trivia Art Association has developed the publishing of new media and multimedia art under the label Trivia Records. They aim to overcome the limitations in accessibility of non-commercial works of art so that they can easily reach a wider audience and the next generations. The editions are targeted both at local and international art markets.
Trivia Records functions as a new media archive, publisher, online classroom, and shop. Their offer can be divided into four areas: Trivia Audio/Video, Trivia Prints, DIY Instructions, and Trivia Products produced by members of Trivia Art Association. Most of the Audio/Video can be downloaded for free, such as sets of recordings from evening sessions at Cirkulacija 2's location at Tovarna Rog and Bandura Kejti in Ti (2004). The products include Mortality Table, an art project in the form of a thematic chocolate bar and her book How Has Art History Changed published in December 2010; Pocket-sized State and MK; and many others.
