Readers Tape Side A: Abstracting Parables

These readers are published in conjunction with the exhibition Abstracting Parables (July 1 – October 16, 2022 at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam) and in the framework of sonsbeek20→24 "On Labour and its Sonic Ecologies".

Abstracting Parables — an exhibition triptych and a sonic journey through guides, scripts, rituals, and murmurings — brings together the artistic positions of Sedje Hémon (1923-2011), Abdias do Nascimento (1914-2011), and Imran Mir (1950-2014): “All three artists navigated the waters of abstraction, expanded the shutters of modernism, reconfigured as well as liberated minimalism from the claws of the Western invention myth and significations, as well as situated the notion of conceptualism within other and wider geographies, histories and cultures.”

The readers can be purchased at the Stedelijk Museum bookshop, through museum shop, through Archive Books and WALTER Books.
