The third edition of 展銷場 Display Distribute’s『CATALOGUE』—part mail-order catalogue, part reader’s digest, and part variety journal examining critical practices amidst a network of readers and producers from East and Southeast Asia—unfolds as a publishing programme co-edited with KUNCI Cultural Studies Center (Yogjakarta) and Read-in (Utrecht) as part of 《Eu Zên》, the 2018 Mediacity Biennale in Seoul. Architectures of print are explored by way of collaborative enactments of publishing as real-time event, lending a performative dimension to processes of stockpiling, editing, translating and knowledge exchange.
With mushroom as method,『CATALOGUE』No. 3 includes contributions from Shu Lea CHEANG, Anna LOWENHAUPT-TSING, Jong PAIREZ and Yaël van der WOUDEN. Graphic-interludes by 강문식 Moonsick GANG and translation-intervention by 박재용 PARK Jaeyong (Seoul Reading Room) . 『CATALOGUE』’s traces are on view at Seoul Museum of Art until 18 November, with the 「COVER」 of the 『CATALOGUE』 (in collaboration with 吳文禮 WU Wenli) screening at Seoul Station every night from sunset to 11pm until 17 November 2018.
