Its title derived from the French word causer, meaning to chat or talk informally, Alexandre Singh: Causeries details a series of encounters between artist Alexandre Singh (born 1980) and various academics, writers, scientists and philosophers. In preparation for his ambitious play The Humans at Witte de With, Singh set up a public discussion series exploring the key themes and concerns of his developing play, such as dance, drama and religion (to name just a few). Aiming at an alternative form of public conversation, more relaxed than what is allowed at a symposium or conference, Singh engaged the invited speakers in deliberately informal conversations on such wide-ranging topics as Woody Allen, Hindu cosmogony, Aristophanes, South Park and scatology. This volume contains an edited selection of 29 of the public conversations conducted by Singh as part of the Causeries series.

New York-based artist Alexandre Singh's Faustian novella reimagines the life of Adi Dassler, founder of Adidas, in a world of reversed time and geography in which America is the Old World, and Europe a new frontier populated by geometry-worshipping primitives. This limited and signed edition includes Singh's 1080-page “Dictionary of a Synæsthetic Language,” nine Wikipedia-style essays, the original story and 18 hand-tipped color photographs.
