Side Effects follows an international artistic exchange born from questioning the “sides effects” of artistic activity—sideline jobs, multiple works, choice, accident. This hybrid publication contains archives, photographs, notes and drawings as well as texts, interviews and images from art historians, sociologists, critics and artists.
Following two group exhibitions in Tallinn (Estonia) in 2013 and in Grenoble (France) in 2014, Side Effects is the result of a collaboration between Estonian artist Laura Kuusk and French art historian Pascale Riou, and from their involvement in the Association pour l'Agencement des Activités (AAA, Grenoble). The project is born from meetings and exchanges, more or less fortuitous, especially through AAA and the Postgraduate Diploma from the Ecole Supérieure d'Art de l'Agglomération d'Annecy (ESAAA). Each copy of the book has a different cover deriving from old books' covers collected at the Printing Museum of Tartu in Estonia.
