Books on Books
curated by Christoph Schifferli
In conjunction with the New York Art Book Fair, the exhibition Books on Books offers an insight into Christoph Schifferli’s collection of artists’ books. The exhibition examines both the image of books and their representation in printed format. Installed so that viewers may page through and examine the works, the installation brings together three presentations of printed matter: the book as memory or documentation, as an image of itself, and as a representation of artwork.
Christoph Schifferli is a collector of photography and artists’ books. An important part of his collection is devoted to photographs related to cinema.
