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.

The artbook platform ‘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 by twisting the form and structural interpretation of a book.

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.

We also have a bookshop to stock experimental books from all over the world, especially from Asia and Europe. The online store ‘einBuch.shop’ is here.

Conceived for the presentation of the artist’s publication PROTEST STENCIL TOOLKIT, #AKTIVISMUS is an interactive graphic environment that maps —and connects the viewer with— contemporary/historical protest graphics and current affairs.

Content from social media and anonymous vernacular material is scrambled with news headlines and historical documentation resulting in visual narratives, more thematic than chronological, that immerse the public in a bombardment of information that demands a call for action. #AKTIVISMUS #ACTIVISM #ARTIVISM
