A continuation of the exhibition Autistic Kilskrift at Galleri Niklas Belenius, shown in Färgfabriken’s project room.

Styx publishing has since the summer of 2005 produced books in a borderland between art, literature, music, film and philosophy. The books are often anchored in exhibitions and performances.

In 2006, the book project Autistic Cuneiform began in collaboration between 32 artists, philosophers, musicians and poets. The project fermented and functioned as a valve, aggregate and membrane by mentally accommodating and on the other hand bringing together the seemingly most disparate elements such as text, art objects, sound, performance and various artistry. It led to a solid book and Galleri Niklas Belenius’s first exhibition. Subversive literature and art expression got another platform to spread from.

Now a continuation of the exhibition Autistic Cuneiform is shown in Färgfabriken’s project room. On February 17, the exhibition opens with a big performance evening between 18:01 and 18:01, as well as a party in the bar. The exhibition leaves room for the texts to enlarge on material and form. With well-defined surfaces and only openings that are turned and braced against each other, a crowd is created where image, sound and text are brought together in the feeling. Here thought does not sweep, it cuts between the intense works. We find no foundation bolts and no torn foundations just an exhibition in frenzy.
