We now have signed copies of Doc/Undoc: Documentado/Undocumented Ars Shamanica Performatica available, signed in person by authors and contributors Felicia Rice, Jennifer A. González, Gustavo Vazquez, and Guillermo Gómez-Peña at our event with them at Bookshop Santa Cruz February 20th, 2018.
What does it mean to be documented or undocumented? How do these terms work across borders and boundaries, languages and nations?
These are the questions fueling the experimental artwork-in-a-box, Documentado/Undocumented, a book art piece that explores the intersection of printmaking, typography, performance, video, sound art, and installation. Doc/Undoc presents this multi-media, multi-disciplinary artists' collaboration in book form, documenting a unique and wildly ambitious adventure into the experimental realms of modern book arts. Included are a lush, photographic recreation of the installation, a reproduction of the codex, an essay by art historian Jennifer A. Gonzalez who situates the project in the context of bookmaking, performance art, and cabinets of curiosities. An introductory essay by Felicia Rice tells the story of the collaboration: its genesis, development, execution, and its ongoing intention. In addition, the book is packaged with a USB drive containing the installation version's original sound art by Zachary James Watkinsand video art by Gustavo Vazquez.
