Abstract (English)

This limited-edition artists’ book/exhibition catalogue was published on the occasion of a group show featuring multidisciplinary works by 22 artists, on the theme of “doing nothing.” The book’s jacket, which also serves as a poster, includes brief descriptions of the works, gathered under three categories: Passing Time (pointless activities and empty pleasures); The Great Outdoors (leisure, recreation, vacation); Escape/Dislocation (the conflict between work and leisure). The book itself contains numerous shorts texts, interspersed with illustrations and photographs of the works. Lists of works and contributors.
