Object NotesJust a Little Rest

 - Object Notes
The manufacture of contemporary art objects.
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 the research project Object Notes by Malte Roloff and Santiago da Silva in collaboration with the curator Tomke Braun presents constellations of objects, materials, processes and documents from art and design, art production, and restoration. The project explores the idea of manufacture as an entry point to the question of who, how and under which conditions contemporary art is produced. It examines the use and significance of craftsmanship and labour in contemporary art and how the knowledge about its production affects its perception.
The publication presents different contributions by the participants of the project. The formats range from loose page inserts, literary fiction and a conversation, to an especially commissioned essay by British design historian Tanya Harrod.
Edited by Tomke Braun, Malte Roloff, Santiago da Silva.
