The launch will take place at Crooked Nose and Coffee Stories at Šaltinių g. 20 — 17, on Tuesday 28 June from 6-8pm.

The book developed out of a travelling exhibition of new commissions exploring failure as a method for art making, titled ‘Double Bind’. During the launch, we will also be offering free copies of the exhibition catalogue of the same name, documenting the six months of the project. The project “Interdisciplinary Art Project “Politics of Emotion: Art in the Expanded Sphere”“ is a collaboration between Rupert (Lithuania), The Living Art Museum (Iceland) and Oslo National Academy of the Arts (Norway). It is produced under the Programme LT07, the EEA Financial Mechanism and Lithuanian Republic.
