Endless Book Club with Monash University
In Endless Book Club, Melbourne Art Book Fair International guests, Self Publish Be Happy, London curate a large-scale public book club across the Fair weekend. Join local book clubs as they discuss key texts, and collaborate in a immersive and diverse literary conversation which seems truly endless.
Art History and Curating Students will be reading Dancing the Bends and Representation in Flux, excerpts from Spooky Action at a Distance, published by Bus Projects, 2016.
This publication was produced as a companion to the exhibition ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’, shown at Bus Projects in January 2016. Curated by Danish Curator Nanna Stjernholm Jepsen, ‘Spooky Action at a Distance’ presented works by artists Amalie Smith, Amitai Romm, David Stjernholm, Rasmus Myrup and Valérie Collart who work with sculpture, installation and digital media to investigate the relationship between physical and digital spaces, the embodiment of information and transitions between the two, three and four dimensional.
The resulting publication was edited, designed and produced by Eller med a, a Copenhagen and Oslo-based independent publisher and graphic design studio. It consists of contributions from the participating artists responding to an invitation to extend their work into the format of the publication, either as a text, images or a version of the work transformed into pages. Along with these creative contributions, reflective texts have been provided by Kim Brockett, Kelly Fliedner, and Sara Thetmark.
The inclusion of Self Publish, Be Happy in Melbourne Art Book Fair 2017 is proudly supported by the NGV Friends of the Gallery Library.
