Exhibition call: Off the s{h}elf: The self and subjectivity in the artist's book

‘Off the shelf: the self and subjectivity in the artist’s book’ is an exhibition dedicated to various expressions of subjectivity in artist’s publications. It aims to bring together contributions from a variety of formats and editions that consider the self in the artist’s book.

The exhibition will focus on contemporary publications and welcomes submissions from a wide range of genres, including: handmade books, object-books, sculptural books, altered books, installation books, photobooks, photozines, print-on-demand books, zines, serial editions (artists’ magazines), multimedia books and ebooks. Potential topics might include, but are not limited to: 

  • Self-portraits as self-analysis
  • Archival practices of the self
  • Family albums and personal narratives
  • Gender and feminist narratives
  • Queer identities
  • Auto-biography and fictional biographies
  • Sexualities and space
  • Performance of the self
  • Travel book and diasporic strategies
