For the exhibition 2084, Catalysti initiated a collaboration with PUBLICS, which is a curatorial agency with a dedicated library. The artists Per Hüttner and Vidha Saumya were invited to each select five books from this unique library in order to develop and encourage discussions relating to the theme of ‘power’. One can select the artist’s name below for a more in-depth exploration about their choice of books, and also visit PUBLICS to review the books at their space.
