The Encyclopedia of Fictional Artists (1605-today) & The Addition

€ 44.90

'Encyclopedia of Fictional Artists (1605 – today)' is a publication by Koen Brams, who together with co-editors developed a compilation of biographies from fictional artists as presented in world literature. Although previously published and distributed as literature, this compilation provokes the perception of the art context as a descriptive and historical narrative and is therefore to be seen as a conceptual framework for potential artistic additions. (Edited by Koen Brams)

'The Addition' is a separate compilation of autonomous responses towards the encyclopedic book whose content remains descriptive and informative. Serving as a collection of artistic contributions, 'The Addition' cryptically unfolds and (de) constructs the ways in which fiction manifests itself within language and artistic production.
