On a global scale, the book is a rapidly evolving cultural object and commodity. Therefore, it has a particularly ubiquitous presence in contemporary art across disciplines. Oriented around text, (infra)structure and the reading body, Structures for Reading features artworks that house, modulate or mediate books or texts. Many visualize the activity of reading in new or speculative ways, asserting new landscapes for the consumption of knowledge.
