When Joseph Kosuth first executed "Fifteen People Present Their Favorite Book" in 1967 the project toyed with the concepts of the authorship over the works and the exhibition, and the aspects of what defines "an artist" and "an artwork." Our show is exploring these same issues and is something of an homage to the original exhibition, but we are also using it as a vehicle for our own excitement; there hardly exists a more fantastic way to get reading tips. Having said that, we are in fact a very serious couple of artists/curators, and this is a very serious exhibition that we are handling with outmost care, as we do always. Also as is always the case with CAC Bukovje/Landskrona, we asked for participation only of those people whose work we really enjoy.
