Kadist Art Foundation, Paris

January 24 – March 10, 2008

Section 7 Books was a central element of the exhibition “Societe Anonyme” curated by Thomas Boutoux, François Piron and Natasa Petresin-Bachelez, during the second stage of this project, in 2008, at Kadist Art Foundation. Temporarily relocated on the hills of Montmartre, Section 7 Books functionned both as a daily operated bookstore and a display structure for the works produced by the artists and organizations participating in Sociéte Anonyme: 16 Beaver Group (New York), b_books (Berlin), Chto Delat / What is to be done? (Saint Petersburg), Erick Beltran (Mexico), Nico Dockx & Friends (Antwerp), tvtv (Copenhagen), tranzit (Prague), and What, How & for Whom? (Zagreb).

The bookstore also hosted a series of events and conversations, including a presentation of the online journal; the launch of the book Art Conceptuel, une entologie published by Mix Editions; an event organized by 220 jours with artists Isabelle Cornaro, Aurélien Froment, Benoit Maire and Raphaël Zarka; readings from the science-fiction novel Philip by Heman Chong, Cosmin Costinas and Tessa Giblin, and diners with Emily Pethick of Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory, in Utrecht, or with Zhang Wei and Hu Fang of Vitamin Creative Space, Guangzhou.
