The six-volume series Intercalations: paginated exhibition was developed in collaboration with Anna-Sophie Springer and Etienne Turpin for the SYNAPSE curators’ network and is published as both paperbacks and web-based open access publications. The series provokes questions about the validity of seeming categorical binaries such as culture and nature, human and non-human, subject and object, book and exhibition.
Intercalations: paginated exhibition is a cooperation of Haus der Kulturen der Welt with K. Verlag, made possible by the Schering Stiftung.
