We are excited to announce our upcoming new Open Book event, where artists can gather to listen to the newest books in our collection. This is a unique opportunity for artists to engage with contemporary art, literature, and other forms of creative expression.
The Open Book event will take place Oct 10th at our studio in IJburg, Amsterdam. The event will feature live readings and discussions of selected books from our growing library of artist books. This is a chance for artists to engage with new ideas and perspectives, and to connect with other members of the artistic research community.
If you are interested in participating in this event, please send your submission to our email address by [email@example.com]. We are looking forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at the next Open Book event!
Open Book Event featuring This Quarter
We invite you to the next installment of our Open Book event series. This time, we will be reading from the Surrealist publication This Quarter.
This Quarter was a literary and artistic journal that was published from 1925 to 1932, during the height of the Surrealist movement. The publication featured contributions from many of the leading artists and writers of the time, including André Breton, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, and Man Ray.
The journal was known for its experimental approach to language and visual art, often featuring poetry, prose, and artwork that pushed the boundaries of traditional forms. Its content explored the subconscious mind and celebrated the irrational and absurd.
At our Open Book event, we will read aloud from a selection of pieces featured in This Quarter, and explore the significance and legacy of the publication in the context of Surrealism and the broader artistic movements of the time.
We welcome artists, writers, and anyone with an interest in Surrealism and experimental literature and art to attend this event.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by email and let us know if you would like to read a particular piece from This Quarter or contribute to the discussion.
