SOUNDFAIR: EXHIBITING MUSIC. Ed. by Thomas Mayeret al. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 104 pp. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783959050906 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: Soundfair is an exhibition collective based in Berlin comprising of Ari Benjamin Meyers (American composer and conductor who worked with the band Einsturzende Neubauten and developed the music series Club Redux), Clara Meister (curator of the MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38 in New York), and Thomas Mayer (founder of Soundfair). Soundfair has set as its purpose the re-contextualization of music through the auditive exhibiting of music as unique artworks. Its goal is to establish a context for composed sound to be understood and consumed as an artwork and to exhibit music as a means of artistic expression, largely without any visual component or implied visual strategy. Soundfair: Exhibiting Music works as a reader as well as a catalogue, documenting all Soundfair performances and projects from the past five years. It also includes texts and images by various artists responding to this topic, including Janet Cardiff, Annika Eriksson, Douglas Gordon, Bo Christian Larsson, Arto Lindsay, Olaf Nicolai and Anri Sala.
