Continuing our collaboration with curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and the editor April Lamm, we have designed the second volume in the book series published by Sternberg Press focusing on the career of the international curator. Sharp Tongues, Loose Lips, Open Eyes, Ears to the Ground presents a selection of his key writings from the past two decades, which elaborate on the manifold thinkers, curators, and events that influence his practice of exhibition making.
The second book in the series contains selected essays which form the compartments of Obrist’s curatorial toolbox, along with elucidating his views on stewardship, patronage, and art itself. Our design for Sharp Tongues continues the language established with the first book in the series using solid colour and bold typography for the cover. The Interfinity symbol which indicates questions with an infinite number of answers, is retained and replaces all question marks in the book. The Interfinity symbol is featured on the back cover with updated geometry by Radim Peško.
