Slavs and Tatars / book presentation in Paris





Presentation of Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names,
a book by the collective Slavs and Tatars.

Recently published by onestar press as part of their ongoing artists’ book series, Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names uses textual diagrams to investigate the nominal tug-of-wars enacted over cities throughout the Eurasian region. As different political entities exercised control over the cities, naming enacts dominion in a way that the artists describe as “entire metropolises caught like children in the spiteful back and forth of a custody battle.” Love Me, Love Me Not was recently featured in the group show The Past is a Foreign Country at the Centre of Contemporary Art ’Znaki Czasu’ in Torun, Poland.
