JAB37: ART / BOOKS / PUBLISHING /
RESEARCH / LIBRARY / NETWORK
Leszek Brogowski and Aurélie Noury asked the artists who collaborate with Les Éditions Incertain Sens to contribute to the pages of this issue, without the form of their work necessarily being a book. Some of these contributions, however, did give rise to books, for example the text of Eric Watier, “The easier it is, the more beautiful it is.” Alongside the artists, we also invited theoreticians whose research follows the same lines as our own. JAB would like to acknowledge and thank all of the contributors.
Les Éditions Incertain Sens: Artist’s Books and editorial practices is a research program of Laboratory Arts: Practice and Poetics (EA 3208) at the University of Rennes 2. On the 25th April 2015, Leszek Brogowski will present his research in a conference at the Center for Book and Paper at Columbia College in Chicago. On the occasion of the publication of JAB #37, on the 2nd April 2015, a seminar dedicated to the history of the Journal of Artists’ Books will be organized at the University of Rennes 2, featuring JAB founder and editor Brad Freeman. A concurrent exhibition presenting every issue of JAB since its inception will be on display at the Cabinet du livre d’ artiste.
