Saturday 10 september from 8pm I will be present in the P/////AKTSALON inviting anyone who want to have a talk or a private reading from my new publication Some Things Bleak. The visual display will be up until October 16.

The P/////AKTSALON is a new club/reading room dedicated to publications, artist books, editions and small works by P/////AKT alumni artists (and beyond). These materials give form to P/////AKT library and collection. The room is also a space that hosts small book presentations in conjunctions with openings and events at P/////AKT.

Some Things Bleak
Texts by Charlott Markus and Sophia Seawell. Designed by Hans Gremmen and published by Fw:Books.

A publication about seeing versus not seeing, about gender, class and climate, a work about representation and reproduction. In short, a vehicle for perception and togetherness.

This publication is more of an artwork than an actual book. A hardcover that contains loose sheets, which all have been folded into separate folders. Folders that can be democratically taken out and be used as separate artworks. Three colors give the publication its identity, white, black and blue, which are combined in both paper choices and in different layers of ink, transparent and opaque alike.

This project is made possible with the kind support of AFK - Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Stichting Stokroos, Tijl Fonds via Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Jaap Hartenfonds and indirectly via Mondriaan fund.
