Wasted Books at Vancouver Art Book Fair, October 18-21, 2018

In another attempt to plant an intellectual time bomb inside the art system’s machinery, Wasted Books arrived at the Vancouver Art Book Fair without any books. However, by mid-fair, we had curated a bag of garbage and presented the curated items (livres de débris) on our table. On the final day, we unveiled Kotext, a book in the form of a box of feminine napkins. While the primary goal of an artist is to earn credibility by mimicking the establishment, Wasted Books seeks to destroy the art world and the world of capital with which it is complicit.
