The Open Books project explores connections between printed objects and forms of exhibitions. It consists of a series exhibitions, events, and a publication that offer potential spaces to experiment with these interactions. 

Open Books Volumes documents this research as it goes along, questioning its own status as a catalogue. Each iteration gives birth to new content that complements the previous one. As a pile of books stacking up in a library, invariably connected to one another by their successive readings...

Volumes is a catalogue, a collection of captions, images, a series of invitations, a bookmark left in places where the editors would like someone to stop. Or is it the actual archiving of an object in real time? In any case, it is what accompanies, completes and supports a research, somewhere between an open book and an exhibition, with a permeability flowing constantly from one another.
