Abstract (English)

Mathur explains how he "unselected" nearly 200 works for this exhibition of unconventional publications by international artists and authors, recognizing the influence of Ulises Carrion's article "The New Art of Making Books." The author reflects upon the roles of language and poetics, the distinction between book and text, and how politics and power affect the making and reception of these works. 2 bibl. ref.
