Wednesday 4 – 6 November 2015
Workshop with Prof. Andrea Rauschenbusch at Hochschule für Künste /  University of the Arts Bremen, Germany
This 3-day workshop starts with the ideas behind artist books by Ed Ruscha and the many appropriations or homages they have inspired since the 1960s.
You will be introduced to the small photo-conceptual artist books, among them Twenty-six Gas Stations, Various Small Fires, Every Building on the Sunset Strip, Thirty four Parking Lots and asked to compile your own collection of images or texts and edit them to create an artist book with a typographic cover. The workshop covers concepts of artists’ books, collation, editing, design and typography and printing and production.

You are required to make a single copy of a book that follows on from the idea of a Ruscha
appropriation. Please choose a subject and work through how this can be expanded. Your book must have pages and be bound in some way with a typographical cover.
