about
einbuch.haus

A book in the form of an exhibition

einBuch.haus considers books as art objects which can be curated and presented in exhibition formats, providing immersive experience between people, objects and spaces.

einBuch.haus offers regular events with a specific artbook concept of selected book in the field of arts and design. Each exhibition or event refers to one book, along with contents and related materials. With an interdisciplinary approach, einBuch.haus are challenged to communicate both material and visual aspects of reading experience.

A building has its blueprint, frame and materials to become a building, a book also has its own systematic structure such as text, grid and texture to become a book. As if a cluster of buildings form a community where a cultural interplay may begin, the books in the exhibition organised by einBuch.haus encourage the audience to extend their three-dimensional reading experience to become a part of it.

A.ssemble / Asian Artbook House

Opening
5 August, 2021
Duration
5 - 28 August, 2021
Concept

For the group show A.ssemble and the event Asian Artbook House, einBuch.haus collaborates with four ‘Books & Gallery’ platforms (Yourmind, On Reading, nos:bookspace, pon ding) located in Asia and exhibits selected books and prints.

Each platform has chosen one artbook for the exhibition and coincidentally the four artists’ works are collage-based. In this exhibition, the seemingly random, cluttered objects and their individual imagery interact effectively with each other, creating a harmonious assemblage in our subconscious.

In the background of developing this project lies the ongoing restrictions on gatherings and travel bans due to the pandemic. Our opportunities to visit other continents or experience different cultures have been scarce and so too in art. However, unlike us, artworks can travel relatively freely. By bringing together artworks from different platforms in Asia to einBuch.haus in Berlin, ‘A.ssemble’ reminds us the importance of being open, the beauty of harmony and that we can interact regardless of restrictions.

einBuch.haus is a place for everyone. The platform is open to creatives and curators who specialise in artists’ books, for example, as well as to anyone who is interested in books. By presenting artists’ books in its media-specific mobility and accessibility, people from different backgrounds and countries are welcome to participate.

* The project Asian Artbook House (original title: Asian Artbook Club) was first conceptualised by Yourmind (Seoul, South Korea) in Feb.2021.

Selected books and artists information


3MM, Yejou Lee, Yesung Eng, 2020

3MM, FRAME, IN & OUT (DOMUSONG #1, 2, 3) 

DOMUSONG is a record of Yejou Lee’s first solo exhibition in 2017, Unused Space, as well as works from related projects. This book was born from the ‘scrap paper’ that Lee has collected since 2015 commuting to her own design studio in Chungmuro, the printing district. It talks about the notion of ‘Domusong*’ which is the method of cutting out paper into desired shapes after printing, through paper, space, and objects.

*Domusong: It refers to the name of the machine which cuts out desired shapes using platen press, or such printing method of processing after printing. It is also called die-cutting since it uses metal die to cut out specific shapes by applying pressure onto the material. Since ‘Tompson,’ developed by the British company ‘T.C. Thompson and Sons,’ was exported to Japan, the machine has come to be called ‘Domusong,’ the Japanese way of pronunciation of it.

DOROTHY

148mm × 210mm  96 pp,
hardcover, offset print, 2020
publisher: ELVIS PRESS

A collection of works by collage artist Takahiro Murahashi.

In the past, he has used the technique of collage to create two-dimensional works that resemble abstract sculptures. In this work, “DOROTHY,” by adding more figurative elements and composition, he has created a mysterious work that seems to move between fiction and reality.These mysterious forms, which look like artifacts of some species, idols, super-ancient orphans, or creatures from the future, remind us of sacred beings that are worshipped in our daily lives and in the religious world.

Takahiro Murahashi

Born in 1979. Graduated from Musashino Art University. He is an artist who mainly uses the collage technique to present his works. Also works as a graphic designer and illustrator for advertisements, magazines, and books, and is active in the art project “guse ars” with Satomi Iwase.


Series12, 12 

“Series 12″ consists of twelve folio-books titled consecutively from 1 to 12. Each title consists of a number of “copies” genuinely hand-traced by the artist from her original drawings, producing an edition size limited by its corresponding title.

The total price of each edition is the same. The price of each copy is the above price divided by the edition number.

Son Ni

Son Ni (b.1984), born and raised up in Taipei, Taiwan. The artist primarily focuses in drawings, draws and re-draws, edits and re-edits in the pool of drawings.

Watson Library of the MET Museum, and MoMA Library in the US.


DIS-or-DER 

Order, disorder, dis-or-der. The essence of things is chaos, while objects are put in the wrong place.

Seeing the existence of every object as an inspiration, this book seeks to reorganise subconscious through the wastes/treasures from the warehouse that had been abandoned for seven years. After the subconscious reorganisation, these objects invite you to experience the pre-existing chaos within them and decode a new aesthetics.

Featuring 93 daily / non-daily scenes of unknown timeframes and dimensions, a photo book of abandoned objects is composed. 26 zuihitsu (loosely connected personal essays and fragmented ideas) on the selected objects from multiple perspectives such as psychology, popular culture, occult, and sociology further encourage you to liberate your imagination and digest the content in your own way.
