Join us to hear David Paton discuss his project Booknesses, which recently took place this Spring in Johannesburg, South Africa. This project aimed to make the Jack Ginsberg Collection of Artists’ Books more widely known and to encourage growth in the book arts in South Africa. Booknesses consisted of a three-day Colloquium with local and international speakers and associated workshops in papermaking, paper engineering and bookbinding. An exhibition showcasing diverse book arts practices by South African artists as well as the much anticipated exhibition Booknesses: Artists’ Books from the Jack Ginsberg Collection were opened, the latter being accompanied by an impressive catalogue. Booknesses culminated in a public conversation between Jack Ginsberg and William Kentridge in which their shared passion for artists’ books was explored.
