November 10 at WALTER books: Publication Launch „On Disappearance“ by SpellBoundPages initiated by Valentina Curandi (DAI, 2017), Leon Filter (DAI, 2018) and Flora Woudstra (DAI, 2017)
You are hereby invited to the launch of SpellBoundPages, a publishing act and binding project initiated by DAI alumni in collaboration with Woodstone Kugelblitz. On Saturday November 10th, 8pm, we will celebrate the launch of their first issue "On Dissappearance" at WALTER books in Arnhem.
The publication On Disappearance is the result of a series of collaborative efforts initiated by putting together a binding machine and the desire to rehabilitate the active verb of dying through a series of works and gestures focusing on hidden aspects and sticky tropes on this issue. This project is dedicated to the moments of disappearance we encounter or we miss in life; to the tensions generated on bodies and spaces and amplified through stories and impressions.
We reached out to a number of desired contributors with a series of wonders on how to utter a moment of disappearance and how to acknowledge the consequences of revealing the conditions of untouchability. Contributors responding to this call are: Maya Ren, Filippo Tocchi, Nadia de Vries, Görkem Baha Yalim, Savannah Theis, Florian Clewe, Maike Hemmers, Nathaniel Katz, Wilfred Vlad Tomescu, Flora Valeska Woudstra, Valentina Curandi and Leon Filter.
This first issue of a newly collaborative intent called SpellBoundPages was entirely realised with mimeograph machines and interventions in risographic and fax-based duplicator techniques in collaboration with Woodstone Kugelblitz.
SpellBoundPages is a binding project and collaborative publishing act initiated by Flora Valeska Woudstra (DAI, 2017), Valentina Curandi (DAI, 2017) and Leon Filter (DAI, 2018).
The launch will take place on November 10 at 20.00h, at WALTER books (Looierstraat 43, Arnhem).
