Art Book Show
Being with Others – Zusammensein
Dec. 9th 2022 – Jan. 28th 2023
For the exhibition Being with Others – Zusammensein einBuch.haus invited twelve contemporary artists and publishers who use the book as the main tool for their artistic practice. The title refers to the notion of connecting the artists’ book community and distributing their works by providing the exhibition space as a platform for presentation and exchange. It also points out the media-specific mobility and accessibility of books in the reception of their readers.
Coinciding with the exhibition, the publication Calendar 2023 is made by the same artists contributing artwork to their assigned month. The project is a homage to the “calendar-as-exhibition” March 1969 by Seth Siegelaub. The two exhibition formats – on site at einBuch.haus and potentially worldwide as a calendar – show the different possibilities of bringing together artists, their art works and the public.
