Exhibition View: Kyoungtae Kim. ‘Serial Compositions’, 2021. einBuch.haus


A book in the form of an exhibition

einBuch.haus considers books as art objects which can be curated and presented in exhibition formats, providing immersive experience between people, objects and spaces.

einBuch.haus offers regular events with a specific artbook concept of selected book in the field of arts and design. Each exhibition or event refers to one book, along with contents and related materials. With an interdisciplinary approach, einBuch.haus are challenged to communicate both material and visual aspects of reading experience.

A building has its blueprint, frame and materials to become a building, a book also has its own systematic structure such as text, grid and texture to become a book. As if a cluster of buildings form a community where a cultural interplay may begin, the books in the exhibition organised by einBuch.haus encourage the audience to extend their three-dimensional reading experience to become a part of it.

Verena Mack, Nonbinary Future, 2022

Free gender expression: plausible option, hopeful aspiration or genuine need? In this experimental large-format publication at least, a colour-saturated, organic-looking Utopian vision is brought vividly to life. The world isn’t just made up of zeros and ones, black and white, A and B, man and woman. It is a diverse mix of different shades, of all which have equal rights. Hierarchical forms and gender dominance need to be called into question. It’s a work that celebrates the non-binary and visualises the breaking down of boundaries.


Verena Mack
Verena Mack studies Art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach since 2018. She works as an Illustrator, Animator and Tattoo Artist. Her work consists of strong geometric forms and characters which often fill the whole format. She likes to address political subjects like environmentalism, sexism, hierarchical structures and questions of gender. Her colorful illustrations seem to communicate the often serious subjects with a sense of humour and irony.

A four-piece ensemble translates radio news from the first spring of the pandemic into physical movement. They are transcripts of news reports, brief descriptions of stage settings plus commentaries and footnotes. If this dance and spoken word performance was a critical examination of current events via actual news bulletins and the body’s physical responses to them, then you could say the accompanying booklet explores the performative possibilities of the double-page spread, the two-dimensional stage as it were.

As a duo, ensemble and in collaboration with artists of different media, we have been developing pieces, installations and publications based on dance, text and painting since 2015. We focus our gaze on structures against which we initially feel powerless–be it the nuclear family, housing conditions in our neighborhood, our belonging to a community that denies people their right to asylum or our complicity with neoliberal structures–and develop exercises for other conditions on this basis.
We understand our practice as documentary in a synopsis of everyday experience with physically and medially experienced contemporary events, which we process in an overlapping of text, voice and movement. In the ensemble Artmann&Duvoisin the dancers Diana Treder, Ophelia Young, Anne-Lene Nöldner Samuel Duvoisin and Elsa Artmann work
together with the video artist Ale Bachlechner, the graphic designer Ondine Pannet and the musician Annie Bloch.

Ondine Pannet
Graphic designer Ondine Pannet lives in Paris and is part of Bureau Est Leipzig/Paris with Lisa Petersen, Sebastian A. Schmitt, Marie Schuster and David Voss. The graphic design studio works primarily for institutions in the cultural sector and conceives, among other things, the visual design of books, magazines and exhibitions. Bureau Est’s work has won numerous national and international awards.

Aleksandar Živković, Was bleibt vom Opelaner
ohne Opel-Werk?, 2021

“The abiding impression is of a global corporation beating a surreptitious retreat.” GM’s axeing of its Opel plants in Bochum was a long and drawn-out saga, dragging on for several years before they were shut down completely in 2014, by which time demolition had already begun. This book sets out to explore the frame of mind of those who, after decades of loyal service, were left feeling disillusioned with their employer. A particularly key section is the interviews with former employees. Headed “Gartengespräche” (“Garden Conversations”) and accompanied by photographic portraits

Aleksandar Zivković
Aleksandar Živković studied communication design at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences. He obtained his Master’s degree at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Editorial Design (“Buchlabor” [book lab]).

In terms of content, he likes to deal with social or societal issues. He likes to interfere, mediate and recombine, swap things in their function and strip away the respect for the original purpose of a design. In his work, he likes to play with extraneous content – whether transdigital or analogue – rearranging and reordering it. He enjoys re-forming narratives and preparing content in such a way that a new audience enjoys it.
For Aleksandar Živković the book is a space and he sees himself as the architect its content. Furthermore, signage and visual identity are other passions of his.

Together with his colleague Alexander Staudt, several new book projects are in the planning stage. During their time together at the “Buchlabor”, they have already collaborated on magazine and book projects, which was a lot of fun.
