Black White Box Cube
The publication is built on the basis of an archive of three major events in video art in French-speaking Switzerland. Each event has a different layout. The selection work and the layout were carried out in collaboration with Tristan Lavoyer. The object is divided in five parts of images at the beginning of the book followed by essays and . The first five are mixed in a different way each time, creating a unique edition series. This desire to distribute the pages in an almost random order is due to the fact that it makes the book non-linear to its reading and underlines the idea that the extracts have no defined place and do not necessarily respond to each other.
Publication for the exhibition: Impact Art Video 74. An exhibition as part of a research project led by François Bovier and Tristan Lavoyer (Cinema exhibited: the year 1974 in French-speaking Switzerland, between the white cube and the dark room).
