  4. A+WS: A propósito de nada / Apropos of nothing


    First edition
    Printed in Mexico City, 2017
    Edition of 500 copies
    Bilingual: English and Spanish
    $25

    This book results from a collaboration between Wendy’s Subway (Brooklyn, New York) and Aeromoto (Mexico City, DF) for NADA Art Fair in May 2015. Both libraries pulled from their own collections to develop a catalog of titles displayed during the fair. In developing subject- or action-specific, idiosyncratic book pairings, this collaboration reflects the resonances from one library to another, and from book to the next, and envisions the library as a space for social and artistic practice.

    Over 50 artists, writers, curators, publishers, and readers based in Mexico City, New York, and elsewhere, were invited to contribute interventions and responses to the library collection. These responses took the form of texts, visual work, ephemera, additions to the catalogue, temporary loans of archival materials, curated playlists, and instructions for actions or modes of reading to take place at the fair, and were presented in a series of pamphlets published in an edition of one. A program of performances and micro-lectures by contributors was staged at NADA as part of the fair’s Special Projects. At NADA, the Reading Room and its temporary collection provided a haven of non-commercial activity within the bustle of a commercial art fair, inverting the logic of the site.

    In June 2015, the Reading Room was re-installed at Wendy’s Subway on the occasion of an evening of exchange, readings, talks, Skype lecture-performances, and book trades. 

    All of these contributions have been gathered here and translated in this bilingual volume for the first time.
