Danziger Str. 145, 10407 Berlin (View on Map)
- LAGE EGAL, an artist-run-space in Berlin called for artist’s books, zines, small presses, and other non-traditional publications. For the duration of the exhibition, LAGE EGAL will become a bookstore/reading library named #TABS – TEMPORARY ARTIST’S BOOK SHOP where the public will be able to look through, peruse, and purchase books and editions.
It will be a big celebration of the object book, ideated and made by artists. The book, as a specific artwork, will be displayed in its transgenic form and use, which includes word and image, sight and touch. LAGE EGAL would like to offer a platform where to show artist’s books and other publications in all their forms.
The aim of this exhibition is also to present a collector’s edition. The idea is to show a book and a work connected to it by the same artist, at the same time. Books will be displayed on tables and/or shelves and must be able to be handled by the public for the duration of the exhibition without gloves. (Elaborate, delicate or unique books that are not meant for handling by the general public will be shown in our glass showcase.)
