InhalteAre we talking about illustrated books, books that painters and artists design together with poets, or artists' books? In this seminar we explore which terms are productive for us. The seminar develops an overview of current research on artist’s books. We will read introductory texts and discuss examples. In a practical part we start to produce books.
