Object Notes: Just A Little Rest
Tomke Braun, Malte Roloff, Santiago da Silva (eds.)

The publication Object Notes: Just a Little Rest is an extension to the exhibition ‘Etwas mehr als Arbeit’, presented at Kunstverein Göttingen from October 11 – December 13 2020.

In the exhibition ‘Etwas mehr als Arbeit’ the research project Object Notes (Malte Roloff and Santiago da Silva) in collaboration with the curator Tomke Braun presented constellations of objects, materials, processes and documents from art and design, art production, and restoration. The exhibition explored the idea of manufacture as an entry point to the question of who, how and under which conditions is contemporary art produced. It examined the use and significance of craftsmanship and labour in contemporary art and how the knowledge about its production affects its perception.

Object Notes: Just a Little Rest compiles contributions by the participants of the project together with documentation of the exhibition. The formats range from loose page inserts, literary fiction and a conversation, to an especially commissioned essay by British design historian Tanya Harrod.

With contributions by Armando Andrade Tudela, Carolin Bohlmann, Marte Eknæs, Viola Eickmeier, Kasia Fudakowski, Kaufhaus des Ostens, Valentina Jager, Rasmus Søndergaard Johannsen, Philipp Modersohn, Ana Navas, Anna M. Szaflarski, Tanya Harrod, Tomke Braun, Malte Roloff, Santiago da Silva.
