Latitudes, eds.
Texts by Giorgio Agamben, Theo Beckers, Latitudes, Peter Osborne, Georges Pérec, Menno Schilthuizen, and Ryszard Zelichowski

Amikejo has been produced in coordination with a series of four exhibitions by artist duos, curated by Latitudes (Max Andrews & Mariana Cánepa Luna) at Laboratorio 987, the project space of the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, MUSAC (exhibitions by Pennacchio Argentato, Iratxe Jaio & Klaas van Gorkum, Uqbar-Irene Kopelman & Mariana Castillo Deball, and Fermín Jiménez Landa & Lee Welch). 
The title refers to a tiny state that existed from 1908 to 1920 between the Netherlands, Belgium and present-day Germany, founded to foster more effective international communication through the synthetic language Esperanto—Amikejo means “place of friendship” in Esperanto. This episode-place was a unique synthesis of cartography, language, nationhood, politics, economics, and subjectivity, and is evoked as a twin site to Laboratorio 987, lending its name and conceptual borders to the exhibition series and the book.
