CARL ANDRE ROBERT BARRY DOUGLAS HUEBLER JOSEPH KOSUTH SOL LEWITT ROBERT MORRIS LAWRENCE WEINER [also known as the ‘Xerox Book’]
Seth Siegelaub


Originally published by Siegelaub/Wendler in 1968. Republished in December 2015 on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

This exhibition in book form was originally published and organised to show work outside of the gallery setting by American curator and art dealer Seth Siegelaub. The book presents several artists (Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner) associated with Siegelaub’s curatorial practice, and applies unconventional modes for the exhibition and distribution of art. Siegelaub asked each participating artist to create 25 pages of work that responded to the photocopy format, which was new at the time. A pivotal exhibition for conceptual art in the 1960s, it has now been republished in a second edition through a collaboration by Roma Publications, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, De Appel arts centre, and Egress Foundation.

Curating Subjects
Paul O’Neill (Ed.)

This sleek and serious anthology of new curatorial writing documents the inter-dependent relationships between the curatorial past, present and speculative futures and, instead of following the convention of curators writing about themselves, invites the authors to provide a text about the curatorial work of others. The result is an eclectic volume of accessible responses that provides a dynamic curatorial discourse where critical essays, theoretical explorations, propositions, historical overviews, interviews, exhibition critiques and fictional accounts sit side by side. Essential reading for students and professionals alike.

This book is a welcome addition to the growing literature about exhibition making. Moving away from autobiographical first-person narratives, Curating Subjects instead invites its broad range of contributors to comment upon the curatorial endevours of others. Conflating and colliding the past and present with possible futures, this book unfolds as an idiosyncratic conversation that is at once informative, entertaining and often revealing.

Curating and The Educational Turn
Paul O’Neill & Mick Wilson (Eds.)

An anthology of new writing that argues for acknowledgment of an educational turn in recent art and curatorial production. Through reasoned and attentive debate, the course of curating and exhibition making into the realm of the ‘educational’ is analysed, using both empirical and theoretical tools.

In recent years there has been increased debate about the incorporation of pedagogy into art and curatorial practice – about what has been termed ‘the educational turn’. In this follow up volume to the critically acclaimed Curating Subjects, artists, curators, critics and academics respond to this widely recognised sense of art’s paradigmatic re-orientation towards the educational. Consisting primarily of newly commissioned texts, from interviews and position statements to performative texts and dialogues, Curating and the Educational Turn also includes a small number of previously published writings that have proved pivotal in the debate so far. This anthology presents an essential enquiry for anyone interested in the cultural politics of production at the intersection of art, curating, and education.
