Anywhere Out Of The Book is an editorial and curatorial project by Marseille-based project space Rond-Point Projects intended to explore the subversive and inquisitorial potentials of art, fiction and poetry. A group of international artists and writers will produce a collective publication using self-publishing and “in house” printing methods. Their working sessions in Aarhus and in Marseille will include moments of public presentation and events in which a wider audience is invited to participate in creating the world beyond the book.

Rond-Point Projects: Anywhere Out Of The Book is part of The Timeshare Project, which marks Kunsthal Aarhus’ 100 year anniversary.
The Timeshare Project
Like a timeshare holiday home, Kunsthal Aarhus will host five international art institutions in the spring of 2017. Each taking turn, they will present weeklong curatorial and editorial projects in the kunsthal’s octagonal exhibition space, for example in the form of talks, performances, screenings, displays, installations or editorial meetings. Following these five visits, the institutions will produce individual publications, which constitute the project’s second timesharing format. By transporting the reader back to recent, distant or virtual pasts – or into the future, a publication effectively serves as a time machine that grants us access to other moments in time. In 2017 Kunsthal Aarhus celebrates its 100th anniversary. As a kunsthal in the original sense of the term, Kunsthal Aarhus does not have a collection where we can consult and negotiate this century of exhibition making. The Timeshare Project in turn substitutes recollection with timesharing as a collective, border-crossing contemporary practice.
