We are happy to invite you to the book launch of GIVE ME YOUR BONES, the latest publication by Eva Meyer-Keller. The book is what Eva and her collaborators like to call a companionship reader as it is edited together with Agata Siniarska and William Locke Wheeler and voices of many of my colleagues are heard.
We will introduce the publication GIVE ME YOUR BONES at 19.30h and at 21.00h the band Grand Central will play live music. Additionally, it is also Eva's birthday party. The bar will be open until midnight.
The publication called GIVE ME YOUR BONES is a journey of many companions – passengers of several stations. Those who have arrived at the final stop and are about to change trains together.
We decided on the title collectively. “Give me your bones” means “let me support you,” not just support of our artistic practices but also giving space to the whole complexity of creation – making art, relationships, days, moments. Bones give structure to our bodies, they are hard and at the same time can be fragile. Our strength and dynamics are built on bones. And because so many tasks rest on our skeletal system, sometimes it’s nice to stop, lean back and tell a story.
