Unintended Experience (A Job in Amsterdam) gathers a collection of diary-like texts, posted in 2015 by Evelyn Taocheng Wang on her Facebook page, recording the aesthetic, intellectual, and sentimental experiences she had as an undercover transgender masseuse in a massage parlor in Amsterdam. The vignette-like chapters retrace the daily routine at the parlor, incidents with clients, conversations with fellow workers, as well as personal reflections, mixing humor with an acute sense of observation. (Inaccuracies of language are an integral part of the narrative.) A series of watercolors by the artist accompanies and illustrates the texts. This is the second edition, in a different format, of a book first published in 2017 by After 8 Books. Both publications are beautifully designed by Louis Lüthi.

After 8 Books October 2021 2nd edition 40 pages Softcover 17.00 × 24.00 cm ISBN 978-2-492650-01-7 English
