From non humans to real estate developers, The Subject of the Email compiles the draft (released in May) and final works (exhibited at Hembrugterrein (Het HEM / De Dood), Zaandam (NL) from 29 October to 1 November 2020) of the 2020 Sandberg Instituut graduates from Master programmes Critical Studies, Design, Dirty Art Department, Fine Arts, Studio For Immediate Spaces, Challenging Jewellery and The Commoners’ Society.
For publication The Subject of the Email, Seven Clicking Index Fingers is a series of letters interpreting the 2020 Sandberg Graduation Draft Works developed by various writers and curators. Each letter is sent out as an email addressed to an organisation, industry or part of society, adding context to the drafts work and addressing related topics and phenomena as perceived by a new generation of artists, designers and (interior) architects.
Seven Clicking Index Fingers emails include contributions by researcher Delany Boutkan (NL), curator Zippora Elders (NL/ DE), curator Leon van Kruijswijk (NL/DE), curator Jules van den Langenberg (NL), writer Adrian Madlener (BE/USA) and critic & curator Laurens Otto (NL).
The Subject of the Email is part of an ongoing series of publications by PS (Public Sandberg) developed in collaboration with graphic designers Our Polite Society. Previous editions are The Place of Birth (2019), The Name of the Author (2018) and The Title of the Work (2017).
The editorial and photo series featuring final works by the graduates will be published on the digital index website and publication "The Subject of The Email” final edition by the end of 2020.
