    《一日黑話書店》是一間非常態性的 Pop-up Shop,專門販售國際藝術出版品,由策展人Kit Hammonds 策劃每一檔書店開幕的主題書選。

    〈測算未來〉為第三檔《一日黑話書店》於台北當代藝術中心展出之書選主題。以Speculation此詞彙作為命題,其所泛指的語意含括了金融、小說、哲學與藝術等領域,而就詞面上的不同之指涉,並闡釋了以當代視角對未來之臆測,且這般釋義往往建構於反烏托邦情境之中。此次的主題書選特別聚焦於涉及了與〈測算未來〉此主題一詞中,所延展的意涵有關之藝術出版印物。

    在〈測算未來〉中將發表《黑話書店》的兩個新系列出版計劃。〈推演的展覽〉是一項進行中的系列展覽導覽,其所導覽為不存在之展。展中的每件作品依據台北當代藝術中心的樓層平面,所規劃並置於每一地磚方格為單位的平方區塊中,並將藉由導覽的象徵性闡述作品,進而由觀眾構築其對〈推演的展覽〉中作品的想像。〈十六頁〉則以邀集藝術家於既定篇幅中以自由發揮進行出版的創作,目前〈十六頁〉所邀集徵件的創作者為Kit Hammonds, 陳瀅如、Daniel James Wilkinson, 彭若瑩以及呂岱如。

    〈測算未來〉開幕當天將推出特映活動〈Towards Crash〉,此為英國廣播公司於1971年所出品關於巴拉德小說〈Crash〉的節目。巴拉德的科幻小說被視為反思早期思辨唯實論的作品,而此短片則為今日罕見的實驗性影視製片。

    《一日黑話書店》為 Kit Hammonds 於2015年發起的藝術組織《黑話》所發展之藝術印物與策展項目,《黑話》同時與《Pa/per View》(比利時的書展)以及《Casa Bosques》(墨西哥城的書店)共組一項新計畫《 :ndex Art Book Fair》;其下一檔書展將於2016年二月五日至七日在墨西哥城舉辦,日前也著手籌備同年將在台北發表的書展。曾任教於英國倫敦皇家藝術學院當代策展學系資深教授,Kit Hammonds 近期發表的專文〈策展的肇始〉刊登於《藝術觀點》策展專刊;其論文〈不被制約的策展人〉亦將發表於出版社 Open Editions 即將推出的讀物《術業有專攻》。

    The One Day Vernacular Bookstore is an irregular ‘pop-up shop’ selling a selection of international art publications. Each bookstore features titles curated by Kit Hammonds around a specific theme or topic.

    ‘Speculation’ is the third Vernacular One Day Bookstore at the Taipei Contemporary Art Center. Speculation is a term in common currency today in a number of fields, finance, fiction, philosophy and art. While applied quite differently, speculation has come to signal the imaginary nature of the future from a contemporary perspective. Frequently this imagination is based on dystopian scenarios. The bookstore features a selection of art books and other print exploring the different directions that this term takes.

    Speculation sees the launch of two new series from Vernacular Publishing. ‘Speculative Exhibitions’ are an on-going series of gallery guides for exhibitions that don’t or can’t exist. Based on the floor plan of TCAC, each work’s location will be indicated within the space asking visitors to imagine the works based on the guide’s description. ’16 pages’ invites artists to occupy a set number of pages to create or document a project. Contributors to these series include: Kit Hammonds; Chen Yin-Ju, Daniel James Wilkinson, Jo Ying Peng and Esther Lu.

    The opening event includes a screening of ‘Towards Crash’, 1971, a BBC programme based on JG Ballard’s novel Crash. JG Ballard’s science fiction is an early example of speculative realism, and this short film is an experimental approach to television rarely seen today.

    The Vernacular One Day Bookstore is a project by the Vernacular Institute for Art Publishing and Curating. Established by Kit Hammonds in 2015, it is a partner with Casa Bosque, Mexico City, and Pa/per View, Brussels in staging the :ndex art book fair. The next edition is at the Museo Jumex, Mexico City 5-7 February 2016, with a further fair being planned for Taipei later that year. A former Senior Tutor in Curating Contemporary Art at the Royal College of Art, London, Kit Hammonds recently contributed to the special curatorial edition of ACT Magazine.
