Collecting Books

A conceptual snapshot of the arts in book form.

My first selection of Austrian art books and artists’ books produced over the last two years. Who publishes art books and artists’ books today and what content do they articulate? This collection contains a synopsis of statements by the actors, their descriptions of themselves, and a brief introduction to each of the curated books. Participants: Museums, firms, private foundations, small publishers, and individual artists.

360 Hours

This publication works both as a guide for a sound installation with the same title – by Nuno da Luz – and as a reader on the World Soundscape Project, a pioneer research group on the concepts of Soundscape and Acoustic Ecology, at the Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, that intended to emphasise the aural environment over the visual. 360 Hours is published by Atlas Projectos.
