À Propos Unmarked, Brown Paper Packaging 

Participatory book-wrapping action in collaboration with August Klintberg, 2017.

Created for the symposium Between the Sheets: Radical Print Before the Queer Bookstore, this action responds to the history of printed material of a sexual or queer nature being wrapped in paper that conceals its contents when purchased in shops or sent by post.

Symposium guests were invited to bring books or other printed matter to the artists, who provided a wrapping service using screen-printed paper of their own design, created to increase the visibility of the wrapped material, rather than to conceal it. The artists also wrapped and displayed a selection of books from the Glasgow Women’s Library, chosen by Lesbian Archive Project Worker Alice Andrews.

The project emerged from other collaborative projects between Klintberg and Nemer involving hospitality, wrapping, and exchange, including Garde Rose and For the Last Guest.
