Abstract or Description:

The Arca Project - 15 visual and 15 textual responses to W.G.Sebald. A curatorial project involving artists and writers.

The project was initiated in response to W.G.Sebald’s last book ‘Campo Santo’ as well as the larger influence of his writing and his use of photographic imagery on visual artists and writers.

Initiated by the exhibitions curators Michael Hall and Graeme Gilloch in direct response to the latter’s contribution of the chapter the 'Arca Project': W. G. Sebald's Corsica’ to ‘A literature of restitution: critical essays on W. G. Sebald’, published by Manchester University Press 2013/14. ISBN: 978-0-7190-8852-0

The 30 participants were asked to make a new piece of work in response to the same image that came in association with W.G.Sebald. The work will take the form of a publication of printed matter. All work for this exhibition will be published by Invisible Print Studio, London.
