Exhibition Summary

Named after a Paul Klee print from 1918, this exhibition was devoted to the curious art of the book cover, more specifically the titular “little world” of philosophy and theory publishing in which Klee’s imagery has proven itself so enduringly popular. In addition to a selection of Klee-infused book covers, a special section of the exhibition was dedicated to Caspar David Friedrich’s Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog. The result was a bibliophilic reflection on the afterlife of images, and the power they wield over disciplines of the mind that often fancy themselves above imaging. (Not so.) With new works by Zachary Cahill, R. H. Quaytman, and David Schutter.
