In this exhibition three artists referred to applied visual language from the past. One of them, Thomas Raat, is known for copying visuals from penguin paperback covers.
Penguin visualised about every thinkable phenomenon in the world on the covers of their paperbacks; COUP decided to find the paperback that reflects the methods of these three artists best, and use it for the communication of the exhibition.
The most suitable paperback that was found was titled Self and Others. Both the title and visual refers to the overlapping character of the work of the three artists in the exhibition (between the three of them and their sources).
After COUP copied the visual from this paperback for P/////AKT, Thomas Raat decided on his turn to copy the title of this paperback for his own exhibition. Nice!
