About

Join us for a guided tour of the STEIDL DECK: 1001 Steidl Books exhibition, led by Gwen Lee (Curator and Artistic Director of DECK).
DECK’s galleries will be transformed into a library, inviting artists, photographers, students and book lovers to have a seat and immerse themselves in beautiful books. The library will include 1,600 titles by Steidl Publishers, amongst them rare items not held in other Asian libraries. The library will comprise books by the most renowned photographers and artists across the globe, including Joel Sternfeld, Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, Robert Adams, Karl Lagerfeld, Lewis Baltz, Ed Ruscha, Roni Horn, and Juergen Teller, to name but a few.


Event Details

STEIDL DECK: 1001 STEIDL BOOKS will be complemented by a curated exhibition about the art of bookmaking, providing visitors a special chance to explore the value of a well-made paper book with all senses.

Steidl’s generous book donation will help build the first public library dedicated to photography in Southeast Asia. It is intended to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of photographic practice, and will document developments in the fine and graphic arts as well as other disciplines in which photography plays a central role.
