Livre Imaginé – Dans Cinquante Ans d’Ici

Livre Imaginé – Dans Cinquante Ans d’Ici is a group exhibition – curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk – on the future of the book and other variable formats with AND Publishing & Åbäke, Xavier Antin, Ruth Beale, Nina Beier & Marie Lund, Elena Damiani, Aurélien Froment, Ryan Gander, David Jablonowski, Laurie Kang, Boris Meister, Klaus Scherübel, Sebastion Schmieg & Silvio Lorusso. March 12 to April 19, Les Territoires, Montréal.

The exhibition posits the book – as both thing, container and idea – against the backdrop of some recent and ongoing discussions that address the probable demise of the bound volume in conjunction with the emergence of digital reading devices. As the title of this exhibition already implies, a somewhat speculative approach towards the subject is taken insofar any productive attempt at summation of the debate has resulted in stances taken on either side, but quite obviously avoided closure as the situation undoubtedly remains open–ended.
