Open Call — ‘Open Books’ Exhibition & Publication

Open Books’ is an exhib­i­tion and pub­lic­a­tion organ­ised by Manystuff and Depart­ment 21 and they invites you to par­ti­cip­ate with your pub­lic­a­tion…

The exhib­i­tion ‘Open­Books’ is invest­ig­at­ing the rep­res­ent­a­tion and exhib­i­tion of the book as an object, with two angles of approach: first the rep­res­ent­a­tion of the ‘book object’ with­in a book; second the ways of dis­play­ing books in an exhib­i­tion con­text.

You’re invited to par­ti­cip­ate is you pro­duced a pub­lic­a­tion that approaches the rep­res­ent­a­tion of the book object with­in a book, if you invest­ig­ated the idea of trans­la­tion from a 3D object to a 2D sur­face (or from an exhib­i­tion space to a book space), if you organ­ised an event where you dealt with dis­play­ing books in a space or if you ques­tionned the phys­ic­al rela­tion­ship with the pub­lic of a book exhib­i­tion.

Send your pic­tures and a small text before Thursday, Janu­ary 20th, 2011 to manystuff.
