89+ – would like to officially invite you to publish a book as part of the exhibition “Poetry Will Be Made By All!” to be held in Zürich (January 30 – March 30, 2014). This invitation also comes on behalf of the LUMA Foundation and the 89plus project, co-curated by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
The exhibition will feature 1,000 new books of poetry, printed on demand and housed in an exhibition library, all made by poets born on or after 1989. We will be drawing on poets like you from over 50 countries, scattered across six continents, to create an expansive library of the absolute contemporary in poetry and poetics.
The books will be printed and exhibited in Zürich at LUMA/Westbau. An additional copy of the book will be sent to you (the author) at your home address. Digital copies will be available for download or printing (via Lulu) on the exhibition site:poetrywillbemadebyall.ch
Of course, we’re on an accelerated timeline. We hope that you can send a manuscript of any length and style during the exhibition between now and March 30th. The sooner you send, the sooner we can publish and exhibit your book!
Here are the instructions for submitting your manuscript:
