ART TALK: Artists’ Books Special (Online)
Thursday, June 24th, 8:00 - 9:30 PM (CEST)
BOOK NOW: www.arttoursberlin.com/online-events
Tearing, printing, burning, cutting, and gathering are all methods of production for artists’ books. These fascinating artworks can vary incredibly, from bound books to scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas or loose items contained in a box. The artist’s book breaks down the barrier between the object and the viewer, in most cases we are forbidden to touch the artworks, but an artist’s book invites us to hold it, to leaf through it, to discover it by using it. As we turn the pages, we often gain a greater understanding.
We are delighted to be joined by Frau Kim, founder of einBuch.haus. In a city of 300+ art spaces einBuch.haus dedicates itself to the artist’s book and considers them art objects that can be curated and presented in exhibition formats, providing an immersive experience between people, objects and spaces. Each exhibition or event focuses on a single book, along with contents and related materials.
Also, we get to hear from an artist working with this medium: Mareike Jacobi. The “Pattern Book” (pictured above) is a central work in Mareike Jacobi’s art practice. The artist arranges variations of geometric patterns created from an aleatoric principle of form-finding developed by the artist herself. Jacobi’s exhibition “The Unexpected Can Occur as Long as It Follows the Logic of Things” is at einBuch.Haus from 10 June to 3 July.
