On Thursday night from 7pm I’ll be in conversation with John Holten about his debut novel, The Readymades. The event takes place at the Pygmalion bar on South William Street, Dublin.
From The Readymades’ Facebook page:
‘Holten has expanded the scope of the contemporary novel’
— Brian Dillon
To mark the first Irish presentation of John Holten’s novel The Readymades Broken Dimanche Press are pleased to announce an evening discussion between Holten and writer and journalist Karl Whitney.
Holten has created a unique fiction that uses a variety of forms, genres and found texts to tell the story of Đorđe Bojić and the LGB art group. In collaboration with the Serbian artist and filmmaker Darko Dragicević, they have resurrected contemporaneously a catalogue of LGB artworks from 1995-2007 that accompany the story of The Readymades.
BDP, together with our new partners at Galerie Gojković, will be presenting this work through exhibitions that will mark the launch of the book across Europe this autumn. We’ve already started in Oslo at Gallery 1857 in August, and this discussion will lay the ground for a further Dublin intervention in the coming weeks.
This fiction is on-going; the novel is dead, long live the novel! Time for a fight
