Platform Seoul 2008: Guidebook

Platform Seoul 2008: Guidebook

Guidebook for Platform Seoul 2008, an annual exhibition organized by Samuso and shown at dispersed venues in the city. Offset lithography, saddle-stitched with cover, page size 205 x 280 mm, 92 pp.

The title was treated to suggest the sense of wandering around the city, by using the graphic language of street signs with confusingly placed arrow marks. The theme of the exhibition, emphasizing the non-visual experiences of art, was “I have nothing to say and I am saying it”: a quotation from John Cage’s lecture on “nothing.” A page of Cage’s book Silence (1961), where the quote was originally published, was scanned, and the sentence highlighted by underlines.
