The Home Show is inspired by Asad Raza’s performative evolution of the apartment exhibition, held at his apartment in New York City. Artists, friends and family were invited to contribute artworks, sounds, performative instructions, and rituals to the show, and every visitor received a tour from Raza. (Swiss Institute, New York)

A book version of the “Home Show” by Asad Raza? Including documentation about the many contributors who came to either make work, write, install work, cook, party or perform at home? The home show’s book version can be navigated somehow like Asad’s apartment at the time of the show. (Don’t miss Adriàn Villar Rojas’s still life in the freezer.) The book “The Home Show” can be read like a long stream of ideas (and of prose and of poetry) somehow uninterrupted (by design) – all texts titles are aligned on the bottom margin leaving the book’s texts flowing, sans chapters or noticeable introductions. The book is punctuated with Asad’s photographs (black and white film) and a typographic rendition of Asad’s voice as a tour guide. Contributors to the show and book include Sophia Al-Maria, Roger Avary, Theodore Boggs, D.Graham Burnett, Ian Cheng, Jessica Dickinson, Jeff Dolven, Moriah Evans, Yara Flores, Judith Goudsmith, Dan Graham, Deanna Havas, Camille Henrot, Dorothea von Hantelmann, Carsten Höller, Brooke Holmes, Phillipa Horan, Tom Jacobs, Koo Jeong-A, Kathrin Jira, Mathias Kessler, Jaffer Kolb, Claudia La Rocco, Nick Mauss, Ari Marcopoulos, Maureen McLane, Mieko Meguro, Sarah Morris, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Anjali Raza Kolb, Samina Raza, Syed Tasnim Raza, Adrián Villar Rojas, Sebastián Villar Rojas, Rachel Rose, Régime des Fleurs, Sadequain, Anri Sala, Sukhdev Sandhu, Tino Sehgal, Shahzia Sikander, Jo Sander, John Wray, and Jordan Wolfson. Initiated by and designed in collaboration with Prem Krishnamurthy of Project Projects.
