Exhibition and discussion of artists’ books Philippine Hoegen & Banu Cennetoglu

On April 20, at 18:00, Museum of Literature at 8, Chanturia Str. 8 hosts exhibition and discussion of Artists’ Books.
‘Artists’ Books are works of art realized in the form of books. The publications have limited copies; however, sometimes they are produced as one-of-a-kind objects referred to as “unique” (Wikipedia).
Banu Cennetoglu works with photography, installation and printed matter. After receiving a B.A in Psychology, she studied photography in Paris. In 2002-2003 she was an artist in residence at the

Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. In 2006 she initiated BAS, a project space in Istanbul focusing on collection and production of artists’ books and printed matter. Her recent exhibitions include ‘Guilty feet have got no rhythm’ / Kunsthalle Basel, Manifesta 8, Sample Sale / Rodeo, Istanbul, 53rd Venice Biennial, The Pavilion of Turkey (with Ahmet Ogut), 10th Istanbul Biennial, 1st Athens Biennial. Cennetoglu lives and works in Istanbul.
Philippine Hoegen lives in Amsterdam. She studied at the Royal Art Academy in Hague and got a masters degree at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. From 2004 to 2007 she lived and worked in Istanbul and co-initiated with BAS the series of artists’ books called Bent. She is a founder and board member of Calcite Revolt, a platform for professional exchange for artists, curators and theorists. She is a tutor at the St. Joost Academy in Den Bosch, NL. She works with photography, video, installations, text and printed matter. Her most recent publication, collaboration with Carolien Stikker, is “Superstructure”, published by Dorsky Museum, NY and the State University of New York in conjunction with exhibition “Inscription”.
The Museum of Literature will exhibit complete Bent Books (a series of artists’ books from Turkey), and a collection of artists’ books made by artists in Tbilisi recently as well as in the last years. Additionally there will be artists’ books from the BAS and GeoAIR/Archidrome archives.
Banu Cennetoglu and Philippine Hoegen will present a brief introduction to the history and context of artists’ books as they have experienced them. Then they will invite the invited artists to exchange their views with the audience, their approaches to the medium and their position in the local context.
The event ‘Artists’ Books’ is initiated by Banu Cennetoglu and Philippine Hoegen, editors of Bent Artists’ Books, in collaboration with GeoAIR.
