Date: Friday 4 March 2011

After publishing, designing and editing more than 500 artists’ books and monographic catalogues, the German art publisher and designer Christoph Keller looks back on the nature of book making in the realm of contemporary art and culture. He will reflect on topics such as the technology of the book, the competition with digital media, the idea of a library, some chance happenings, the Kiosk archive, the hirarchies of the book making process, the importance of graphic design in art and the relational crisis that artbooks and the art world are facing right now and his own urge to still continue making books.
The lecture will be followed by exhibition openings at 6.30.
