Rakett was partaking in the e-flux project Book Coop that was part of Art Basel 2011. The Book Coop was located in the Kopfbau (head building)—the oldest building at the Messeplatz complex, slated for demolition later that year. The artists Julieta Aranda and Anton Vidokle developed a constellation of projects situated somewhere between exhibitions of art and the concrete forms of sociality encountered in everyday life. All the eight books that Rakett presented were also available to buy in exchange of Time/Bank Currency Exchange.
