Exhibition catalogue for the 2011 exhibition Peace, Love, and Rockets organized by Felipe Mujica at Center for Book Arts. The project was conceived in collaboration with Keegan Cooke, Andreas Diefenbach, Claudio Fernandez and Yan Jun, with the goal of documenting examples of alternative music production and design. The works in this catalogue demonstrate ways in which music can be more than pure sound; for example, a vinyl record cover that has been silkscreen printed, a CD booklet that unfolds with drawings and collage, or other musical propositions that use techniques and strategies similar to those found in book art production. In addition, this project will also showcase an international scope of independent and self-made albums that contain a focused artistic vision, pointing towards two interesting and intertwined moments: the creation of a local product (in contrast to a mainstream one), and the parallel construction of a new kind of globalized grassroots movement. Each collaborator will bring into the process examples of local production from four different geographies and contexts: Europe, South America, North America and China.
The catalogue includes an essay by Felipe Mujica, conversations between Mujica and Keegan Cooke,
