Octavo Tegenstellingen Covers
September 2016
octavopublicaties.nl

Tegenstellingen is a new series of books by Amsterdam based Octavo Publicaties. In contrast to Octavo’s previous series, Tegenstellingen is concerned with urgent political and social developments and the texts are often antagonistic in content.

The covers of the series are all derived from a single banner. This implication of protest expresses both a sense of discontent, but also the positivity of action.

This project is a collaboration with Atelier Carvalho Bernau

The covers for the new Octavo series were extracted from this 3D simulation of a protest banner.

A banner signifies a collective effort, not only in its fabrication but also the act of holding and walking – the act of protesting.
Het Regeren van Precairen
The first book in the series by Isabell Lorey deals with issues of governmentality and self-precarisation.
