Catalog for "Politics of Place," an exhibition on view at the Center for Book Arts January 18-March 30, 2019. Organized by Monica Oppen and Alexander Campos.

"From the mechanisms of colonialism, to intractable wars, displacement has become a catalyst to a contemporary discourse surrounding belonging, homeland and nationhood. The Politics of Place highlights artist books, mainly from Australia and North America, both new world territories that share parallel histories, to explore the longstanding issues centered in indigeneity, enslavement, conflict-caused immigration. These issues reflect the undercurrent of political motives and decisions often decentering and ignoring the voices of those displaced." -- description from the Center for Book Arts
