One Thousand Books

I am pleased to participate in the One Thousand Books festival in Copenhagen, April 10–13, 2014.
“Twenty-eight independent publishers from all of Northern Europe meet up in a supermarket in Copenhagen to sell books, greet their audience face to face and to share ideas and strategies with one another. The isles of the supermarket act as a visual and conceptual backdrop as the art books are sold alongside everyday groceries, to bibliophiles and the unexpecting shopper alike.”
Talks by David Senior, Jacob Fabricius, Erik Kessels & Paul Kooiker, Thomas Hvid Kromann, and Joachim Schmid.

Two of my latest publications, The ABC of Popular Desire and X Marks the Spot are now available in digital form. This is the start of a partnership with Visual Maniac, a Madrid based company that makes digital versions of books and magazines on visual culture available.
