I Am Also not a Book is the title of the last part of a trilogy of exhibitions which includes It is not new, it is a book (from September, 2014 to May, 2015) and I call them simply books (from May to October, 2015). On this occasion, the title refers to the 1973 work by John M. Belis, I Am Also not a Book, which consists of a card with the sentence “Attach this card to any book-type object and it will become a genuine John M. Belis,” and which can indeed be affixed to any book-shaped object.Altogether, the three parts, curated by Guy Schraenen, provide an overview of the main investigative fields within the universe of artists’ books. While part one dealt with the tautological notion of the artist’s book, and part two reflected on the artist’s book as an artwork in its own right, equivalent to a painting or a sculpture, part three focuses on works that exist at the interface between a book and an object.
