Still working on our book, which will include all our main activities of project About and around curating in first two seasons (December 2011- December 2012)- public talks with our guests (integral versions as interviews), workshops, our activities while we were guests, etc. Currently we work in several parallel lines (transcripts, texts, design), just to make everything ready for printed edition, both as hardcopy and downloadable .pdf document in two languages- Serbian and English.
