The Gharīb Pavilion contains two publications. The Gharīb pocket book ֊ a portable companion to the Pavilion ֊ gathers various sources that were important for Arutiunian’s research into sonic dissent, vernacular knowledges, and forms of peripheral thinking. Disparate excerpts of stories, essays, recipes, spells in multiple languages, tones and voices all went into this book, which acts as an alternate catalogue of the Pavilion. The book was edited by Andrius Arutiunian and Anne Davidian.
The Book of Gharīb is a limited-edition artist book published in collaboration with the Lucerne-based Hallow Ground label. The hardcover book contains essays by Andrius Arutiunian, Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh and Anna Della Subin, together with monochrome photos connected to the notion of Gharīb.
Each of the publications are mirrored by a specially designed bottle of Gharīb oghi – a drink made to be consumed with the books in equal parts.
Both books are available at the Pavilion (together with oghi’s) or can be ordered separately online via:
The Pocketbook (10€ + shipping)
The Book of Gharīb (30€ + shipping)
In addition, it is also possible to order the limited-edition of Seven Common Ways of Disappearing vinyl record (250€ + shipping). The signed and numbered (27 + AP) edition contains a lathe-cut handmade LP and both publications of the Pavilion.
