Book Launch for What Remains of a Building Divided into Equal Parts and Distributed for Reconfiguration

Thursday, July 30th, 2009
8 p.m.

Join us for drinks and books this Thursday night! To celebrate What remains of a building divided into equal parts and distributed for reconfiguration, the latest release from Errant Bodies Press. Editors Ken Ehrlich and Brandon LaBelle will contextualize their research on site-specific practices and contributor Rachel Allen will also give a short presentation. This volume marks the ongoing evolution of the Surface Tension project which functions as an international platform for collaborative work including exhibitions and publications.

What remains of a building divided into equal parts and distributed for reconfiguration is the second volume in the Surface Tension Supplement series dedicated to publishing documentation and critical writing on site-based practices in art, architecture and performance. This volume investigates the social and political dimensions of buildings and urban spaces, including critical reflections on recent urban planning policies in China, histories of participatory architecture, and proposals for urban farming. What remains of a building divided into equal parts and distributed for reconfiguration offers multiple perspectives on the limits and creative possibilities of the built environment.

With contributions by Rachel Allen, Ava Bromberg, Ken Ehrlich, Jesko Fezer and Mathias Heyden, Nis Rømer, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and The Land Foundation.
