Albert Coers is visual artist, author, editor. At MISS READ, he shows artist's publications with a focus on installations with found objects and linguistic material. He has self-published books and zines but also collaborates with other artists and smaller as well bigger publishers, o.a. with Kerber, Revolver, Salon, Walther König, De Gruyter, Icon (Hubert Kretschmer) and, recently, Hatje Cantz. He not only produces and publishes artist's books, but also has reflected on them in texts and lectures.
His latest book, “Books to Do”, is not the usual monograph, it’s a meta-book about already realized and yet to be realized book projects by Albert Coers in the form of a to-do list. It is a collection of ideas and subjects, a self-documentation, self-stimulation, and a joyfully utopian agenda at the same time.
