Accompanying a series of collaborations in 2020-21, the publication “If It’s For The People, It Needs To Be Beautiful,” She Said offers the first comprehensive and global perspective on Jeremiah Day’s work as an artist, performer, researcher and teacher. Designed and co-edited by Will Holder, the book’s roots go back to Holder’s 2017 period at KW in which he and Day initiated a weekly workshop at K77 Studios that continues to this day. The book reflects the close collaborations with the co-publishers centre d’art Le Lait, Villa Romana and the Badischer Kunstverein which co-host the event.


The performance and book presentation will take place outside.  


Jeremiah Day graduated from UCLA in 1997 and was a resident artist at the Rijksakademie 2003-4, and a fellow at the UDK Graduiertenschule in 2015-16. From 2011-15 he was a member of General Public. He is also on the board of K77 Studios. Often working together with figures like dancer Simone Forti, the band Chicks on Speed, or thinkers and activists like Fred Dewey, collaboration and self-organisation of cultural spaces and events are key aspects of Day’s vocabulary. His work has been shown at a range of institutions from Ming Studios in Boise, Idaho, to the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Day is represented by Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam, and Arcade, London.
