Pierre Leguillon, Oracles. Artists' Calling Cards, 2017, Edition Patrick Frey, Photo: Clovis Duran
‘Oracles’, by Pierre Leguillon (France, 1969), takes the facsimile calling cards of 123 artists from the 18th century to the present day, and inserts them like bookmarks into a book by over seventy authors. It follows the history and social context of calling cards, the social context in which they were produced, and related historical narratives. Pierre Leguillon and Carrie Pilto will present the book and give a talk on these artefacts, which lay the foundations for a microhistory of social networks formed before the advent of Facebook. 
This program is initiated by K_nstvl___ and Amsterdam Art, in collaboration with Kunstverein and Temporary Gallery.
