BERLIN.- Never odd or even is a text-spaced exhibition that unfolds in mental and architectural chapters through perspectives created by textual artworks. The artworks presented derive from Concrete Poetry, Dadaist and Futurist Manifestos, as well as techniques of mind mapping. The exhibition is shaped as a book, formatted in spatial chapters that invite the visitors to become the co-authors. Imaginary space is rendered tangible through text and movement. Artworks appear as wall texts, projections, spoken, enacted and filmed prose, activating the architectural space in ways that amplify the meaning of the words and the worlds inside.

The point of departure of the exhibition and its title is the legendary book and performance project, Never odd or even, 2005–2011, by Berlin-based artist Mariana Castillo Deball. Her project consists of 'a book of unwritten books,' 30 book covers designed by creative producers selected by the artist and published as one book. A new volume of the Never odd or even book has been made and published (by Bom dia boa tarde boa noite) for this exhibition. The imagined content of these 'unwritten books' will be performed during the exhibition both in Berlin and Roskilde by well-known authors, poets, theoreticians, and artists.

Artists: Rosa Barba (DE/ITA), Erick Beltrán (MEX), Nanna Debois Buhl (DK), Mariana Castillo Deball (MEX), Simon Evans (UK), Brendan Fernandes (KE), Peter Fischli & David Weiss (CH), János Fodor (HU), Lise Harlev (DK), Ferdinand KRIWET (DE), Ján Mančuška (SK), Tris Vonna-Mitchell (GB), Ciprian Mureşan (RO), Henrik Olesen (DK), Pablo Pijnappel (FR), Adam Pendleton (USA), Sebastián Romo (MEX), Dmitry Vilensky (Chto Delat?)
