Courier, curated by Corinna Schaming, brings together a range of contemporary artists who have created works that are rooted in the physical, communicative, or iconic properties of the typewriter. From emblematic homage to pointed social critique, the works selected for this exhibition demonstrate that despite its obsolete status, the typewriter remains a potent carrier of untapped ideas.” Documented by a 60-page, fully illustrated catalogue featuring an essay by James Siena.
