Uncounted: Call & Response is a collaborative artists’ book, which takes the form of a call and response: Every Ocean Hughes’s (EOH) twenty-three part text “Uncounted” provides the impetus and prompt for responses from the twenty-three artists, writers, poets, and scholars whose wide-ranging contributions are gathered here. “Uncounted” has also been used a script for live performances; some of the responses included in this volume arose from these performative situations. Between EOH’s text and the collected responses lies the opportunity to unfold, create dissonance, point elsewhere, and write into. It is an improvisation of a publication.

The artists’ book is published in conjunction with the exhibition Emily Roysdon at Secession, Vienna.
