Labyrint 09 - Writings and Observations

Deadline: October 26, 2009 (RECEIVE) & (EMAIL)

Labyrint 09 - Writings and Observations

International Artist’s Bbook Exhibition
Botkyrka konsthall
November 7, 2009 to March 13, 2010

The second edition of Botkyrka konsthall’s international artist’s book exhibition Labyrint will open on November 7th in Sweden. The title of the exhibition, Writings and Observations, refers to the artistic practice of writing as a way of seeing, a way of altering the world.

This year’s edition will focus not only on artist’s books, but also text art, and the aspects of writing in contemporary art. A research into writing as a way of thinking will be carried out – how are ideas brought forth through text, and how can the way we read an older work or history per se be changed through text? Labyrint will also focus on works with performative aspects such as film manuscripts of artists, and art in relation to text, music and sound.

Labyrint 09 - Writings and Observations is open to artists worldwide with a mutual interest; the concept of books and text art, and the practice of writing.

A catalogue will be produced in 2010.

Curators: Joanna Sandell and Pia Sandström
