Join Max Schumann, Associate Director of Printed Matter, to discuss the history of artists’ books and the specific publications in the Aspen Art Museum shop placed in collaboration with Printed Matter.

The mainstream publishing industry remains in an extended period of crisis. Luminaries proclaim the death of the book in the digital age. In spite of this, artists’ publishing is experiencing a significant resurgence in activity and public interest. Schumann will examine this renaissance in relation to the history of contemporary artists’ books, as well as the context of the digital information revolution with its sociopolitical implications.

AAM talks and lectures are presented as part of the Questrom Lecture Series and made possible by the Questrom Education Fund.
