Curated by Fatma Cheffi

The starting point of the exhibition is the curator’s encounter with the “Unhappy Readymade” of Marcel Duchamp in Roberto Bolano’s “2666” posthumous novel. The encounter led to a reflection on the intersection with the literary in contemporary practices through a selection of works that challenges the concept of literature and explores the poetic engagement of artists with objects in the light of our uncertain and shifting present condition.
