Gest: Laboratory of Synthesis

Initiated by a series of events and discussions during the exhibition Gest at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, this book Gest: Laboratory of Synthesis #1, includes a range of essays and interviews bringing together philosophers, artists, theorists and critics to discuss new approaches to art writing. It operates in the widening gap between the mainstream art magazine and the academic journal in order to create new conjunctions and productive disjunctions between theory and practice out of which new voices and new modes of art writing emerge.

Contributors include: Jennifer Allen, Eric Alliez, Devrim Bayar, Dan Fox, Rainer Ganahl, Johnny Golding, Peter Osborne, Anne Pontégnie, Nina Power, Ralph Rugoff, John Russell and Dirk Snauwaert.

Published by Book Works in association with Kingston University London. Gest: Laboratory of Synthesis #1 was the fourth in a series of co-publishing partnerships initiated by Book Works, entitled Fabrications, commissioned by me. This book was edited by Andrew Hunt and Robert Garnett, and designed by Sarah de Bondt and Grégory Ambos.
