For Book Week Scotland DCA will be presenting a display of books, published ephemera and zines all made by artists. The display will draw on works from a number of sources including work from the Centre for Artists’ Books which is based in the Visual Research Centre in the building. This collection has been built up over many years and comprises books made by artists as part of their practice, rather than books about artists.
Alongside these works the display will include rare examples of the landmark ‘multimedia magazine in a box' Aspen featuring work by Andy Warhol, Marshall McLuhan and Dan Graham kindly lent to Dundee Contemporary Arts by Heart Fine Art, Edinburgh. There will also be a focus on the Dundee quarterly art zine Yuck’n Yum and the unveiling of new books from DCA’s recent exhibitions programme by Ruth Ewan and Torsten Lauschmann.
