Some Things Bleak is a publication about seeing versus not seeing, about gender, class and climate, a work about representation and reproduction. In short, a vehicle for perception and togetherness.
This publication is more of an artwork than an actual book. A hardcover that contains loose sheets, which all have been folded into separate folders. Folders that can be democratically taken out and be used as separate artworks. Three colors give the publication its identity, white, black and blue, which are combined in both paper choices and in different layers of ink, transparent and opaque alike.
Charlott Markus will be present in the P/////AKTSALON during the opening on Saturday 10 September, inviting anyone who wants to have a talk or a private reading.
