'As the title of this exhibition, we have chosen a line from the most artistic of Chinese emperors, Song Zhenzong (968-1022 CE). The connection of this maxim to the display at hand should be obvious: the "house" is three exhibition areas of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, thematically transformed along the spatial conceit of a residence; the "book" is the great art magazine Parkett, founded in Zurich in 1984, and an engine of artistic thought and practice ever since; and the "gold" consists of 212 works by 192 artists, created in collaboration with the makers of Parkett throughout the long course of its existence.'
