Artbook platform einBuch.haus invites Two Pages for an exhibition on the occasion of its official opening on the 12th of September 2018.


The majority of books we read today still have a similar form: sheets of paper with a cover. However, creators in the field of bookmaking attempt to extend the book’s function in physical, optical and psychological ways.

The concept ‘Exhibitions as Books’ was first suggested by Seth Siegelaub (1941-2013) as an alternative to the traditional exhibition space. As a curator, he asked artists to participate in well-known projects such as the Xerox Book and July, August, September 1969. Unlike Siegelaub’s curated conceptual art projects, ‘Two Pages’ runs solely on a random, self-generated system.

‘Two Pages’ invites a creative/team in one city to become an initial contributor. This first participant proposes the next creative/team in the same city who in turn invites the following one and so forth. Each sketchbook has a theme and participants are encouraged to freely respond in relation to it on their given two pages.

Following the main concept of ‘einBuch.haus’, where a single book is exhibited to read alongside related materials, Two Pages: A physical book in the making presents the Berlin Sketchbook (2014) with the theme ‘Q. What would you change?’. The 26 participants of the sketchbook are the result of a self-generated chain of creative people or teams based in Berlin.

In addition, a new collaborative experiment between ‘Two Pages’ and ‘einBuch.haus’ will explore ways for new visual narratives. This time, there is no sketchbook to pass on, instead, the participants’ response to the image below will be displayed directly in the gallery space, questioning the format of publishing.

Through Two Pages: A physical book in the making, ‘einBuch.haus’ suggests rethinking the performative process of bookmaking and reading. The exhibition will lead the audience to explore an unpredictable journey of how a book starts and ends.


Two Pages (Konstantinos Trichas and Dionysis Livanis)

‘Two Pages’ is a series of sketchbooks shared by artists, illustrators and designers around the world. The sketchbooks build a chain of creatives who inhabit the same city or place. ‘Two Pages’ is centred around the recording, spreading and exchanging of ideas which takes place throughout the hand-to-hand journey of each book.
