Extended Caption (DDDG)
This book was published on the seventh occasion of Stuart Bailey showing a group of artifacts whose only objective connection is that they have appeared in the pages of Dot Dot Dot, a magazine Bailey edits since its conception in 2000.
To exhibit a composition of individual images is the result of the fundamental idea to invert the regular hierarchy of the magazine, where texts are generally primary and images secondary. The book therefore contains a reproduction of the exhibition wall with all 43 artifacts, followed by reproductions of 43 previously published Dot Dot Dot articles, systematically presented as captions to these artifacts. With texts by Stuart Bailey and Jan Verwoert. Design: Roger Willems and Sam de Groot.In collaboration with: Culturgest, Dexter Sinister, 2009
