Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2014. book launch @ Motto Berlin 18.07.2014
start 7pm

Catalogue of the eponym’s exhibition at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, Spoleto, 23 June – 26 August 2012 and at &: Christophe Daviet-Thery, Paris, 26 October – 20 December 2012

Essays: “Do Androids Dream about Kindles” by Vincent Pécoil, “American/English” by Yann Sérandour
Bibliographical notes: Francine Delaigle
Design: Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié

This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

On the occasion of the book launch, a part of the project by Yann Sérandour, Printed exhibition: Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2012, will be shown in the vitrines of Motto Berlin’s courtyard.
