This collaboration between the University of Johannesburg’s Archives and Special Collections and the Jack Ginsberg Collections of Artists’ Books collections showcases some of some of the most important artists’ books outside of museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) and the V&A in London and builds upon the existing relationship between these two partners reflected in the research website www.theartistsbook.org.za. In addition this exhibition provides a timeous opportunity for a small yet focused selection of artists’ books to be seen in a South African university and will, we hope, generate intellectualand artistic debate on the genre, not least of which being the artist’s book’s complex relationshipwith both the library and the gallery space.
