He has curated a glass cabinet dedicated to the modernistic journal for art and culture Amauta, first published in 1926 in Lima. In a performative action Hammonds transforms the class cabinet into a tactile surface for reflections on the ideas of publishing, education, and modernism. The event will be in English.

With her interest in the printing system, Risograph, as a starting point, the Oslo-based artist Jessica Williams will present the printed matter on display in the glass cabinet she has curated at Kunstpublikationer 2012.
