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.
