UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. Place-Making in Southeast Asia takes the act of writing as a starting point to reflect on a variety of recent art practices in and around Southeast Asia, focusing on the complexity of reading, performing, understanding, and translating these texts.

The exhibition was developed as a research process to identify, locate, collect, and discuss artists’ books. On view is a wide selection of artists’ books, as well as artists’ magazines, prints and graphic works, artists’ postcards, multiples, radio art, records, and CDs. The Centre for Artists’ Publications at the Weserburg Museum für modern Kunst is one of the few art venues in Europe with a collection of Southeast Asian contemporary art that is being reappraised and presented comprehensively for the first time in this exhibition.
