The Serving Library Annual 2020/21 (Objects)


This year’s edition is published in tandem with a long-term installation of The Serving Library’s collection of (mostly) framed objects at 019, an artist-run space in Ghent, Belgium. Apparently, the sole common denominator of these objects—which range from paintings, photographs, and LP sleeves, to a can of green paint, a German license plate, and a Ouija board— is that they appeared as illustrations in an issue of The Serving Library Annual  or one of its immediate antecedents, Bulletins of The Serving Library or Dot Dot Dot, sometime in the last 20 years.

The present volume depicts the entire collection at the time of writing, arranged in chronological order of production. Each object's image is accompanied by an extended caption.

Edited by Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, Vincenzo Latronico, and David Reinfurt
