Olaf Nicolai, Diary: Melbourne, 14 May 9 June 2019

How to Produce a Site Specific Work Anywhere is an ongoing book series by artist Olaf Nicolai. When Nicolai is invited to participate in an exhibition in a new city, he asks the organisers of the show to identify a local doppelgänger who is instructed to act as a tourist on his behalf. This look-alike is tasked with the role of visually documenting their activities in the city in which the exhibition is being held. This documentation is then made into a diary, which Nicolai publishes as a work. 

This book is the eleventh in the artist’s series and was produced in Melbourne during Bookworks, a survey of contemporary artist book publishing guest curated by Warren Taylor at Monash University Museum of Art, 24 July – 21 September 2019.
