THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

PREPARING FOR PEACE

October 12, 2005. Theresa Wolfwood and Gerd Weih are arriving in Brussels to participate at a "peace and human rights conference" organized by the Bertrand Russell Foundation inside the strange intimacy of the European Parliament.

Theresa and Gerd ask me to be present at a book launch, the result of a research on war and peace by the Quakers. This book was distributed for free to all the guests attending the reception in a room connected with the restaurant of the MP's.
Surrealism, hypocrisy or sheer schizofrenia? We thanked the reception to the leader of the British Labour Party in the EP, a convinced Blairite...
I managed to get in the Parliament despite I was not on the official guest list but I know how to handle large burocrazies, I work for one myself!
