Danish artist Joachim Koester’s new book, Bringing Something Back, centres on a series of “meditation tapes”. The “tapes” explored the various twilight zones between waking and sleeping, and what can be brought back from such semi-darkened mental states in an exhibition context.
Operating on the one hand as a catalogue, the book also sets out to expand this exploration in its own right.
A visual essay, compiled by art historian, writer and curator Yann Chateigné, runs through the book and combines Koester’s own works with a selection of archival pictures that visually extends the discourse of the “tapes”, texts and artworks.
Features an interview with an interview between Yann Chateigné and Joachim Koester.
