The modes, methods, and discourses around re-enactments, appropriations, or reinterpretations of artists’ books. Today, artists’ books maintain a paradoxical existence, from the extremely rare founding books – termed “first edition” or “original” – to the “facsimile” editions that emerged to counteract the scarcity of the originals by offering new versions of noteworthy titles. In his work, Van Leijsen, who heads a studio in Geneva, focuses mainly on cultural projects, notably in the fields of publishing design and research. Leijsen underlines a curiosity for practices of appropriation by artists and publishers, and makes transparent the methods and discourses in the production of facsimile artists’ books.
