Re-Stock – Fiction | Non-Fiction

A subtle performance action

The fiction section in a book shop with a book called "The Case for Israel" facing front

eXpo Arts Festival, Nottingham.

Autumn, 2003.

A subtle performance action that can be carried out in any multi-national bookstore.

This is how it works. Select a bookshop, such as Waterstones or Borders.

Find a book(s) that you feel has been ‘mis-classified’.

Consider where this book belongs, and then put it there.

The piece was devised for eXpo Arts Festival but was banned because of their corporate sponsorship with Waterstone’s. It went ahead with it anyway.
