Report from the Gutenberg Galaxy (Blaker), 3: Archive Has Left the Building (2017)

15 May 2017, dusan

A publication released in connection with the exhibition Archive Has Left the Building, the third iteration of The Gutenberg Galaxy at Blaker (2013-15), which takes as its point of departure the archive of the artist Guttorm Guttormsgaard, a collection of tens of thousands of objects he has collected with the intention of “documenting necessary impulses to keep one’s spirits up.” The archive is located in a former dairy in Blaker, a village 40 km northeast of Oslo. Guttormsgaard has referred to the printed book as a model for his own artistic practice. The project aims to reimagine the book today.
