Swab Reading 2018
Swab Barcelona presents Swab Reading, a program that aims to put together design and reading, art and literature. The 11th edition of Swab leaves some room for editorial disciplines, and invites two european projects to showcase their publications:
PARANOIA PUBLISHING, Estonia
Paranoia Publishing was born in Estonia, but has offices at several points of the planet. The publishing house bets on creation beyond conventions, aims to “destruct reality” and calls itself the most abnormal product of the contemporary art market. This estonian project reformulates the book’s meaning, and transforms it into a concept itself, in content, in idea.
A/B BOOKS, Switzerland
This edition will also have a/b Books an editorial proposal founded by swiss artist Alexander Bühler (1977, Switzerland). Bühler’s works are characterized by not coming from the immediate encounter with the outside world, but from a profound cognitive process around reality. a/b Books publications reflect this will, and combine text, image and collage.
