In contrast to a classical exhibition catalogue, the aim of this exclusively image-based publication is to function as a surplus venue of the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art.

8th Berlin Biennale

Publication Excursus

Edited by Mariana Munguía

Excursus is a book of visual propositions, with each participating artist invited to submit an original proposal covering up to four pages with various format options. Excursus creates a space that can travel and thus reaches beyond the immediate domain of the 8th Berlin Biennale as it is staged in the city of Berlin. Lasting beyond the duration of the exhibition as such, this compilation suggests a walk through the ideas traversing and intersecting the 8th Berlin Biennale while questioning the political and aesthetic force and autonomy of images.

Concept: Juan A. Gaitán, Mariana Munguía, and Maricris Herrera
284 pages, soft cover, 22 x 32 cm, ca. 285 images
49,80 €
A publication of KW Institute for Contemporary Art, published by Hatje Cantz Verlag
ISBN 978-3-7757-3876-7

Excursus is available at all venues of the 8th Berlin Biennale and can also be purchased for 49,80 Euro excluding shipping at order@kw-berlin.de.
