With Disappearance was the first in a series of micro-exhibitions that feature selections from the B R U N A Press Archive, and which form inter-connective pathways between its collection’s many thematic threads and concerns arising locally.
For this exhibition, Curatorial Fellow ROBERT Yerachmiel Sniderman approached the subject of disappearance by specifically highlighting “works [that move] within, from, or towards disappearance. The crisis of disappearance. The opportunity of disappearance. The future of disappearance. The roots of disappearance. In Israel/Palestine. In Minnesota. In the Korean Diaspora. In Vancouver. In the traditional lands of the Nooksack people. In Kosovo.” Through nine publications that range from a work of poetry to artist books to a handmade chapbook to a linguistic textbook and a newspaper manifesto calling for an “Irradiated International,” this exhibition invited visitors to engage intimately with the archive around questions of consequence.
