The Infinite Library
Sep. 07, 2012 to Oct. 27,
In advance of a forthcoming book produced in collaboration with the Badischer-Kunstverein (Karlsruhe), New Documents is pleased to present videos from The Infinite Library, an ongoing project by artists Haris Epaminonda and Daniel Gustav Cramer.
Begun in 2007, The Infinite Library is composed of an archive of over 50 books made through the recombination of pages from one or more found publications. Each book is dismantled, modified, and reorganized. Pictures and pages—momentarily out of order—are brought together to shape yet another whole. The concept for each new volume develops gradually, starting from the content of the original book and the associations that unfold in the process of making.
Open by appointment.
