Short text: 

The book collects for the first time twenty years of writings by Gavin Wade and explores a practice that he refers to as ‘upcycling’, a process of stealing, copying, recycling, using other texts and artworks, and responding to existing conditions.

Some of the texts are artworks – manifestoes, stories, statements – others are interviews, discussions, proposals.

This Kickstarter campaign offers you the opportunity to support and take part in this project – investing in the book and artwork generated from it, to read, upcycle and transform your own city environment.

WE NEED YOU TO INVEST IN WHAT WE DO.
IT'S A MUTUAL SUPPORT STRUCTURE
YOU SUPPORT US, WE SUPPORT YOU.

Upcycle this Book consists of twenty-six chapters, twelve constructivist drawings using the alphabet as a motif, and an introduction by David Burrows. The book will be edited and co-published in English by Book Works and Stroom den Haag, and designed by James Langdon, with a publication date of April 2017.

This publication is co-published with Stroom den Haag. We would like to thank Onyeka Igwe for making the Kickstarter film with us.
