Look Book, Slavs and Tatars

Tax included.

Since 2009 Slavs and Tatars have published several books covering topics from Uyghur literary culture to satire in the Caucasus, many of which have become collector’s items. They have also produced an extensive array of posters and editions as well as interventions and ephemera for renowned institutions such as the MoMA, New York, and Vienna’s Secession. Having started as an informal book club, Slavs and Tatars have grown into one of the most prominent international artists’ collectives. They have been invested in the act of reading as a collective phenomenon throughout their oeuvre. As their practice has grown to include installations, sculptures, audio works, and film, the exhibition Лук Бук (Look Book) at Frans Masereel Centrum, Kasterlee, Belgium, seeks to reactivate the space for print as a generative and accessible format claiming its rightful place at the top of the artists’ singular hierarchy of media.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Лук Бук offers a comprehensive overview of Slavs and Tatars’ printed matter. Featuring essays by Ksenia Nouril and Dina Akhmadeeva, the catalogue demonstrates print’s unique ability to convey the conjunction of scholarly analysis, humor, and generosity of spirit that has become a trademark of the collective’s output.
