Open Books – Publication

Open Books is a project aiming to explore the “mise en abime” of the object book as well as to research the use of books as an exhibited material.
This publication, Volumes ABC, was produced in two steps. Printed ahead of the exhibition, Volumes A+B served as a documentation tool and caption for the public. Extended later by Volume C, the three volumes become then a trace of the exhibition.
