I Love Books
"I love books and all aspect of books."
In "I Love Books" from PechaKucha Night Bangalore Vol. 13, Anja Lutz is a Berlin-based book designer specialising in contemporary art publications. She studied at London College of Communication and the Jan van Eyck Akademie. She was Visiting Professor at the American University of Beirut and the Bauhaus University in Weimar, as well as Design Fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude. She is the initiator of the experimental publication platform shift! that has won numerous awards and was present at various festivals and exhibitions. Anja is also co-founder and art director of The Green Box art editions, a publisher of artist books. She develops and designs in close collaboration with the artists and has recently published the first interactive art e-book.
"I am interested in local crafts and the Hampi crafts project, initiated by Jaaga. I am also planning to research popular crafts in and around Bangalore. The way I work with artists when designing their books, is always a collaborative one. The same goes for the »shift!« publication projects, where collaboration is at the heart of the activity, drawing from each other's ideas, inspiration and expertise. In the same way I want to view a book on local crafts, by not just doing a book about, but first and foremost a book with the crafts people. This could also go as far as including their crafts in the actual making of the book.
I would also like to put a focus on the sustainability aspect of local and popular crafts, insofar as they offer highly inventive ways of using and reusing material. This re-appropriation of existing and often discarded material constitutes an important aspect of how we use the possibilities around us, with awareness and respect. I believe there is a lot to learn from the people who produce these re-appropriations and I would like to research their approaches and products. And seek an exchange with them, to develop new items and ideas based on their knowledge and experience."

At 40, something I realized that a series of brief "diversity immersion experiences" defined not only what I do but who I am. Encounters since childhood that have been centered around self-awareness, difference, bias, value and mindset determine the narrative we create surrounding every aspect of our life. I share my journey and expound on how it led me to my current career. My name is Lisa and I AM A DIVERSITY TRAINER.
