The fourth iteration of the Book of Copies exhibition will take place in Zurich, as part of the 'Kopie, Pastiche, Collage - Architektonische Verfahren der Aneignung' show, curated by Elli Mosayebi and Martin Steinmann.
Book of Copies comprises sets of A4 black-and-white photocopies made
available to viewers to copy and assemble; becoming receptacles of a
collective form of knowledge provisionally called “architecture”.
Organized according to a precise set of rules by a multitude of
producers, the books of copies are based on an inherently derivative and
collective effort, starting with a simple act of accumulating formal
knowledge, namely “collecting”. This exhibition was developed in
collaboration with the Architectural Association, London.
