“Books under Hotchkiss” (BUH) was opened in 2015 nearby the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa. It’s a facility of gallery and book store「素敵なものをつくっているあの人の頭の中を可視化できたら」という思いから生まれた、ギャラリーと本屋をかけ算したような施設「ブックス・アンダー・ホッチキス」(BUH)が、金沢21世紀美術館のすぐ側へ2015年にオープンした。




Books under Hotchkiss

Text: Ayumi Yakura
where it was launched to “visualize the inside his/her head who produces nice and lovely things.”

There, one person exhibits his/her works every 3 months as “output” at the gallery on the 2nd floor, and at the same time it’s possible to read and see their books and photo books as “input” at the book store on the 1st floor.

What influence did books which artists read as a child, or books which are simply valued, have on the artist’s work? This is the chance to know and pick up books which went through the artists mind during your visit to the gallery – as many times as one likes during the term.

Interviews of featured artists and creators are posted on the official site by members of BUH. They are available if you want to know more about the theme of the exhibition and selection of books. Original goods collaborated with artists and creators and BUH’s capsule goods are also available online.
