The falling of the books... is a subjective reading of the Library of It’s Moving from I to itFormContent’s current program.

It’s Moving from I to it is a 15-month program on visual language, abstraction, disappearance and the object. With a nomadic format and limited time span, it uses fiction as its main tool to reflect on cultural production. The program takes the format of a script and develops gradually through insertion of scenes, which can be either commissioned texts, events and exhibitions based on an outline written by FormContent. Its focus is on the role of language as a structuring device, on nomadism in relation to hosting, on knowledge production and questions of authorship.

The falling of the books... is conceived as an open structure to generate an overlap of interests, it is framed as a cumulative number of sections, open to other institutions and conceptual entities to add materials and exchange content, but also as a platform to host events and activate its content. It has been conceived in dialogue with Beirut, and is structured through five sections, each existing out of a mixture of materials such as You Tube video’s, music files, documentation of lectures, books, excerpts of texts, images and artworks by Åbäke, Goldin+Senneby, Oliver Laric, Pilvi Takala, Harald Thys and Jos De Gruyter. The materials have been suggested by the various contributors to the programme of FormContent, Kunsthalle Lissabon and Beirut
