Idea Code 16396

The Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art began collecting artists’ books in 1999 with the purchase of editions created in the 1960s and ’70s, a period that coincided with the rise of conceptualism. It has since gathered over 5,000 of artists’ books. Counterpart to an eponymous exhibition, this book features a selection of 26 books and editions by 21 artists that present alternative perspectives on what it means to produce knowledge. The fourth volume in a series devoted to research and presentation of works in the collection of Serralves, it contains entries on each of the publications, reprints of texts by Chus Martínez and Clive Phillpot, and a foreword by curator Ricardo Nicolau.
