Careof has set up a small bookshop within its exhibition space. It is not only a place where you can buy second hand books and new publications: it evolves like a project and it is an ever-changing place dedicated to art publications and artists’ books, which include Italian and international titles. During the course of the year the bookshop becomes a place of experimentation for curators and publishing houses. They are invited to suggest theme-based set-ups and visual routes through artists’ books, to organise collective readings and presentations, to reflect on the complexity of the art publications field, to suggest new interpretations and spark new debates.
The first project invited to inhabit the Bookshop is Kunstverein - Milan, an experimental curatorial platform for exhibitions.
