by Chunking Books

Chunk #1 is a short list of ten items by and about Chantal Akerman. For this list, I‘ve translated two particularly interesting texts that, as far as I am aware, are being presented in English for the first time: a conversation with Jean-Luc Godard and an excerpt from the initial screenplay of Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, originally titled Elle vogue vers l’Amérique, offering a narrative that shifts from the final film.

The Chunk series will center on a specific theme or artist, published as a short list with excerpts from the featured books. As for its publication schedule, let’s just say it will arrive with the unpredictability of a cat walking into a room–whenever it pleases.

These will be dispatched on April 29th. The ten items listed are initially exclusive to the printed catalog and will be available on the website 10 days later.
