Under-Cover: Investigations in Art Publishing comprises the summer programmes of the Artists’ Book Library. In continuing Tai Kwun Contemporary’s dedication to supporting the expanding art ecology of Hong Kong, Under-Cover presents a series of summer events spread across three categories: Spotlight, Live, and Workshop. As a platform for local, regional, and international practitioners who work with books as a medium of artistic expression, Under-Cover seeks to expand notions of art publishing across material and immaterial platforms. The term “investigation” is used playfully and thinks of our visitors and participants as part of the process in defining what an artist book is and can do. 

 

Spotlight takes place on Thursdays in the form of curated slideshows and video works by artists who work with diverse forms of art publishing. Live events take place on Friday evenings and include presentations by those working in sound publishing, performative readings, and low-fi zine production. Lastly, Workshop will take place on Saturdays. Each workshop will be led by a specialised practitioner who will work with a small group to produce artist books, to rethink methods of translation, and to experiment with reproduction through sampling—both musically and textually.
