Book release: Beth Laurin, PROVISORIUM
2 November 2017, 19:00
Please join us for a talk by Josefine Wikström on the occasion of the release of the book “Beth Laurin: Provisorium”. The book has been published by Index to accompany our current exhibition with the artist, and includes texts by Josefine Wikström, Jaleh Mansoor, Leif Elggren and Axel Wieder.
The publication provides a comprehensive overview of Beth Laurin’s work and describes a theoretical and historical context. The title of the publication, Provisorium, which is the same as the exhibition, was initially taken from one of the many notes that Laurin keeps in a collection of her notes, reading “Livet är ett provisorium” (Life is provisional).
