This publication assembles materials relating to Dora Budor’s exhibition Continent at Kunsthaus Bregenz (19.03.–26.06.2022), with the intention of providing different perspectives on the project while realizing an autonomous object within Budor’s broader body of work.
Central to the book are four texts that elaborate on the exhibition in different ways: an essay by curator and writer Richard Birkett, a text by author Amelia Groom, a republishing of an essay by architect and historian Robin Evans, and an interview between the artist and the director of Kunsthaus Bregenz, Thomas D. Trummer.
These texts are brought together with the intention of allowing signification to further accrue in relation to the photographic documentation of the exhibition and the design of the book itself, which was produced as the result of a close collaboration between Berlin-based design studio HIT, the artist, and the editors.
English and German text.
Co-published with KH Bregenz.
Accompanies the exhibition ‘Dora Budor: Continent’, 19 Mar – 26 Jun 2022, Kunsthalle Bregenz, Austria.
