The exhibition brings the online library bzbooks.org to a physical space. It showcases all the books under the self‐publishing project created by Amsterdam based artist Bruno Zhu (1991, PT). For the past two years, Zhu has been creating an extensive body of work using photography and bookmaking as tools to reassess narrative systems and the value of the photobook.
