Sezgin Boynik, Minna L. Henriksson: Noise After Babel / Spector Books (Leipzig, 2015)
11.8 × 18.8 cm, 352 pages
‘Noise After Babel’ examines multilingualism as a potential ground for political engagement. The project is rooted in the study of linguistics and approaches social issues from this point of view. The blurb of the book is featured on the front cover in a composition reminiscent of whipping scars, Stéphane Mallarmé’s ‘Un coup de dés’, or artist Lucio Fontana’s slashed canvases. The same composition is reproduced on the back of the book, with embossed slashes replacing the printed text.
