One Thousand Books 2018

Friday October 12, 2018 at Annual Reportt

This year's iteration of One Thousand Books celebrates the release of the publication Danske kunstnerbøger siden finanskrisen, sorteret efter titel-længde [Danish Artist’s Books After The Financial Crisis, Sorted By Length of Title], published by Lodret Vandret. The publication is an extensive collection of information about the Danish self-publishing scene from the period of 2011–2018. For the evening Annual Reportt will transform into a functional newsstand/bar in which we will celebrate the release of the publication and the self-publishing scene in general, it's actors, their friends and readers.

Good company guaranteed, all are welcome!

During the evening the bar will be managed by four different publishers one at a time who will be serving drinks based on their own recipe while they present their publishing practice. The menu of available drinks will be revealed on the evening, taking the form of a 6×3 meter LED billboard. Additionally each of the bar-managing publishers will be responsible for at festive feature during their hour in the bar, ranging from readings to performances and a surprise event. The four publishers are: Hour Editions, Forlaget Gestus, KLD Repro and Lodret Vandret.

The publication and drinks will be sold for a very fair price – we hope to see you all!

The publication

Introduction (in Danish only):

I denne tryksag har du en liste over de fleste kunstnerpublikationer udgivet siden 2011. Nu er det 2018.

Bøgerne har en form, som ikke kunne have været en anden. De er ikke bare fartøjer eller beholdere.

De vibrerer med samtidskunsten i de store museer og gallerier, men du kan have dem hjemme. De er billige, lette at opbevare og gode at tage med. Deres udgivelse er en politisk gestus, som ofte udføres selv eller i samarbejde med gode venner. Hvis du køber dem, er du med til at støtte aktivisme og gør-det-selv ånd.

På de følgende sider kan du krydse af, strege under, tælle og se billeder. Indholdet er data, men også inspiration, råd & vejledning og gode ideer. Måske får du lyst til at opleve nye titler, som du ikke kendte, eller gamle bekendte, som du havde glemt fandtes. Det håber vi.

God fornøjelse
