Berlin—Transart faculty member Lynn Book is featured in the guests and artists-in-residence exhibition Made in SomoS on view at SomoS Art House through September 30, 2014.
Current SomoS resident, Book presents work from UnReading for Future Bodies, 2014, a multivolume and multimedia project including performance and video. Considering the reading and reception as performative, Book highlights interactions between body, voice, text and image in order to envision new approaches to making knowledge in media and technology saturated environments.
Video selections from “Escapes”, the first volume of the project, are on view (and published in the online journal Anglistica AION) along with studies for the second volume “Derangements” (also included in the upcoming premiere of Transart’s ELSE journal).
A transmedia artist, Lynn Book works across disciplines and cultural spheres to make performance, exhibitions, media works, public projects and encounters. She is Associate Teaching Professor and Associate Director of the Program for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship at Wake Forest University and has been a faculty associate of Transart since its inception. Book’s recent performance of German artist Kurt Schwitters’ early sound poem Ursonate, 1922 (a rare occasion of a woman publicly performing the iconic work) is catalogued at the ongoing audio recording project and archive PennSound.
