Publication of BAT: Bridging Art + Text

The book presents contemporary artists born or based in the Caribbean, Africa,

Europe and the US creating an insight into aesthetics not often presented in

Scandinavia.

Bridging: We wish to bridge the art works and their historical, political and

personal contexts. These narratives not only influence the works but are also

transformed through their aesthetics.

Art: Photography, installations, sculptures, paintings and stills from

performances and video works.

+: The extract presents works inspired by spirituality, Jamaican dancehall culture,

racial segregation in Cuba and being a woman of Black ancestry and parentage

living in a Nordic culture.

Text: Fiction, poetry, song lyrics, personal narratives, academic accounts and

political discussions.

The texts look into historical accounts of slavery, colonialism, racism and the

transfer of cultural and spiritual knowledge and resistance across the Atlantic. The

politics of Blackness are discussed in texts on Negritude and Pan-Africanism, Black

identity and ethno-aesthetics.

Layout: Built up around the idea of the hidden and revealed foldouts the layout

creates an intimate and tactile relation to the visuals. Generous attention and

detail is given to the art works, as their stories and production envelops the

heart of the book. Size: 290mm (height) x 220mm (width). Pages aprox. 550.
