The Annotated Reader is an exhibition-as-publication, or publication-as-exhibition curated by Ryan Gander and Jonathan P. Watts

About

Consisting of 281 texts selected and annotated by invited creatives, artists, academics, writers, musicians, and designers. 

The invitation was straightforward. Image, we wrote, you've missed your last train —  what single piece of writing would you want with you for company in the small hours? Perhaps this text transformed your thinking. It might be a mantra returned to. Perhaps it is a text you felt should be read by younger generations or that you wish you'd encountered as a student. 

Annotation would add a further layer to the text, demonstrating and suggesting ways of reading, displaying though, complicating the relationship between image and text, reading and looking. Even if three people selected the same text no contribution would be the same. 

With a selection of contributors including Marina Abramović, Art & Language, Paul Clinton, Tom Godfrey, Ragnar Kjartansson, Sarah Lucas, Alistair Hudson, Jerry Saltz and Hans Ulrich Obrist, we invite visitors to compile their own compendium, as an educational resource, curriculum, index and ethics.
