Palais des Beaux Arts Publishing is a sculpture that holds fragments from the history of Atelier Bachwitz, the founders of the Palais des Beaux Arts Wien. The edition included a detailed description of the archival rules for the object, ‘My Blood Strangers’ and digitized materials from Atelier Bachwitz’s ‘Chic Parisien’. The object was designed to enter archival conditions, its form questioning standards of archival library practices.
