Invisible Press

2014 I Istanbul

Invisible Press was a mixed media exhibition. I curated it as an experiment for the establishment of a library. The Hungarian Cultural Institutes all used to have a traditional library, so the new, Istanbul-based institute was also planning to establish one as well. I considered it an out-of-date idea as most of the Hungarian literature is available on the internet or can be found in webshops. So, I chose a selection of two paper-based genres, that are worth having in printed form: fanzine and children’s books. Following the original idea of a library we offered our visitors a quiet surrounding to read and chat. I invited artists to make murals in these reading rooms which we furnished with the shelves and tables of that year’s bookfair.
