Das Buch: Book as Art Object was an exhibition of the work of 40 German artists. The title of the exhibition can be literally translated as 'the book’, however these works only bore the faint traces of resemblance to the form of the book.
A number of the works retained close relationships with books but they were modified or destroyed in some way; some were constructions with books but without text and no pages; still others used traditional materials but adopted forms which are not generally identified with traditional books.
