Removing the text and the images from a selection of art books designed by Anja Lutz in close collaboration with the individual artitst reveals the nondescriptive details: the margins, the edges, the backgrounds, the spaces between the lines...
Marginalia is an investigation into the anatomy of books - the physical object, its materiality, and inner structure. It is an attempt at mediating the emptiness. The quiet and yet eloquent remaining spaces seem to have their own language - that of an abstract visual poetry of books.
Marginalia is a personal interpretation of the books designed by Anja Lutz with and for the following artists: Kader Attia, Sonia Boyce, Angela Bulloch, Jeanne van Heeswijk, Christine Hill, Hannah Höch, Hella Jongerius, Loriot, J. Mayer H., Laercio Redondo, Julian Rosefeldt, Lawrence Weiner amongst many more.
