Bookworks revisited is the documentation - or archiving - of different artists books, alternated with Carrión commenting on books. In 1975 Carrion initiated the gallery bookshop Other Books and So. In this video, Carrion shows 90 artists books, thus archiving them. In the end of the video, Carrión explains that he believes keeping an archive (of art, books, etc.) can be an artwork in itself.
