Book Launch: Dongyoung Lee’s “English(100 Indexes)”

Page Not Found hosted the launch of <English(100 indexes)>, Dongyoung Lee’s latest publication. Dongyoung Lee uses graphic design to create autonomous forms. The artist talk was followed by a sound performance by Martijn in’t Veld, who wrote the preface, and a slides installation by Martin La Roche, who created its endnotes.

<English (100 indexes)> is a book about index pages. Indexes are a brutally simplified version of its contents. The words from indexes are selected very carefully by its authors but they will never be a perfect representation of its contents. Because of this failure, a possibility of index page as a poetic or darkly humorous text is created.
