The Form of the Book (TFOTB) offers time and space for critical reflection, addressing socio-political questions and highlighting the role of books as tools of empowerment.
This project is a laboratory and a learning community shaped around books, to expand and think about the importance of cultural and visual literacy and to give voice to underrepresented issues that our society wants to ignore.
Books can be a lens for critically looking at the world and unite artists from different backgrounds and disciplines toward a common goal.
This project is a cooperation between the artists Anya Jasbar and Daniel Augschöll, with the intent to create a platform for those who have limited access to resources necessary for their practice, education, and research.
