The Last Book

From March 10 until July 31, 2010, The Last Book is exhibited in the Zentral Bibliothek in Zurich. The Last Book is a project of Luis Camnitzer.
Silvio De Gracia is present:
The Last Book is project by and curated by Luis Camnitzer, firstly shown at the National Library of Argentina. This book is compiled with written as well as visual statements by artists from around the world in which the authors comment on society past and future, leaving a legacy for future generations. The Last Book makes a statement in itself about how technology has such an unavoidable impact on our daily lives, the book is printed and is alive "in the flesh" so to speak, it was quite ironic when the National of Library of Spain offered to show this work but only on "You tube", being a complete contradiction to the purpose of the book.
The Last Book serves as a time.capsual and leaves a document and testament of our time from all sorts of artists from all sorts of places.
