Reading as Art | Simon Morris (ed.)
Information as Material
This catalogue explores possibilities of reading as an artistic act. The works displayed and under discussion find different means to foreground and to investigate the activity of reading: the forms it can take (silent reading, reading aloud, spontaneous reading, purposeful reading, and so on), the matter of reading (the book, the screen, the space of the page), the bodies that engage in it and the contexts in which it occurs. All of the works make reading manifest in some way; in so doing, they each show – differently – how reading is its own form of making. The catalogue itself explores different reading sizes and speeds.
