Book on the Fritz is an idea and discussion based platform. We create exhibitions, discussions and workshops that investigate the publication and its various components, both morphological and historical with an emphasis on its contemporary manifestations.
In relation to the LGBTQ-festival in Gothenburg and this summer’s large solo exhibition at Göteborgs Konsthall by the artist Chitra Ganesh, Book on the Fritz #03 will be a space for interaction, discussion and practice in the more disregarded parts of the Konsthall.
The method of investigation takes its form from the making of a publication, exploring the role of printed matter by considering its position as a carrier of communication, instrument of power and upholder of norms.
The project will be initiate, along with invited guests, during the LGBTQ-festival, arranging public workshops, discussions and screenings which aim to address issues surrounding the format of the publication from a LGBTQ point of view.
During the festival a temporary office will be set up at Göteborgs Konsthall, exposing the process behind the making of a publication as well as producing an exhibition and a library that will be on show throughout the summer, in parallel to Chitra Ganesh’s solo exhibition.
