LABYRINT ARCHIVE FOR ARTIST’S BOOKS & TEXT ART
Labyrint Archive was founded in 2007 for the purpose of collecting artist’s books and artist’s publications for permanent public view at Botkyrka konsthall. Presently we have approximately 500 works in the collection, mostly by artists who participated in the Labyrint exhibitions in 2006 and 2009.
The Labyrint Archive is appreciated by art students and guest curators as well as by our visitors. We have a special program for children in the studio workshops based on our experience of working with artist’s books in the collection.
You can borrow a selection of the books in the public library which is situated next to Botkyrka konsthall. Some works in PDF-format you may copy in the COPY bar and others you are welcome to purchase in our small Book store.
