Abstract #1 & #2

Abstract is an alternative photobook review collectively edited by readers and makers at “Open Edit Table”. We delve into discussions about the selected photo publications led by the invited guest hosts. Attendees apply doodling, highlighting, post-it noting, chit-chatting, and snacking as critical methods for reading photobooks.

After the event, both physical and abstract traces of the discussion are gathered and compiled into a collective publication called ‘Abstract’.

Abstract and Open Edit Table are part of an on-site specific project called ‘Bread and Butter Bookshop’ by Fotobook DUMMIES Day, co-curated by Jacky Jaan-Yuan Kuo from Tenthaus, at Momentum 12: Together as to gather. Fotobook DUMMIES Day is an artist-led initiative with a focus on image and self-publishing.
