'Fantasies of the Library is a sequence of pages wherein the reader-as-exhibition-viewer learns—rather surprisingly, but with growing conviction—that the library is not only a curatorial space, but that its bibliological imaginary is also a fertile territory for the exploration of consequential paginated affairs.' - from the publisher

The intercalations: paginated exhibition series is a project of SYNAPSE - The International Curators' Network, published by K.Verlag and Haus der Kulturen der Welt in conjunction with "The Anthropocene Project 2013/2014".
