e-flux book coop at NY Art Book Fair​

Thursday, September 29, 6–9 pm


22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Avenue
Long Island City, NY

Costly and often monopolistic approaches to the distribution of art books has resulted in a situation where it has become common for not only the author, but also the publisher to receive little to no revenue for a book’s sales. As a possible alternative, e-flux is pleased to present the book coop: a mobile bookstore of over 600 titles on contemporary art, theory, and criticism from over 100 international art centers, artist-run spaces, and independent publishers. Housed in a refurbished aluminum Airstream trailer, this temporary model for more equitable distribution in art publishing will display and sell books on behalf of the cooperative’s member institutions.

The book coop trailer will live in the PS1 courtyard throughout the duration of the 2011 New York Art Book Fair, after which it will embark on an international tour of contemporary art venues.

Join us at PS1 on Saturday October 1, 12 noon for the New York launch of Are You Working Too Much? Post-Fordism, Precarity, and the Labor of Art, the fourth in the e-flux journal reader series published by Sternberg Press. To mark this occasion, W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) will present a live reading followed by a self reflexive Q+A; and Liam GIllick will read from Construction of One: A Manuscript (2011), an unpublished text on the progressive working practices deployed by Volvo factories in the early 1970s.
