12 Nov 2021: Spineless Wonders


Small Press Artists Books; The Global Book; Materials, Materiality and Process. The first of a 3-day series of events presenting research on small press publications, raising questions for contemporary and future publication through returning to early histories of word and image.

Curated by Leila Kassir and Tansy Barton, Modern and Special Collections, Senate House Library and Clare Lees, SAS; chaired by Gustavo Grandal Montero.

Sarah Bodman is giving a short talk at this event on how we interact with books through: non-linear reading, appropriated texts from books repurposed as 3D artefacts, collaborative and participatory projects that explore books, reading and memory. Examples include artists’ books such as Katie Herzog’s ‘Literaturewurst’, works by Paolo Carraro, David Dellafiora’s ‘KART’ project and Mary V. Marsh’s ‘Between Here & Now’ and her participatory project ‘Read Here Now’.

Friday 12th November 2021, 10:00 – 17:00 GMT. Free event, book via eventbrite here.
