Von Hand veredelt. Mit Sternenstaub gedruckt "Patersons (*1981) Buch der Ideen ist eine Tagtraum-Sammlung. Das Kompendium enthält Ideen, die realisiert werden könnten, aber vielleicht niemals ausgeführt werden. Am besten wäre es, wenn das Buch für immer unvollendet bliebe, damit stets wieder etwas hinzugefügt werden kann." Mary Jane Jacob

Kader Attia

Sacrifice and Harmony

The catalogue for the exhibition “Kader Attia: Sacrifice and Harmony” brings together a wealth of materials, images, and texts on the new works of the French artist. In addition to transcriptions of various interviews from the large video installation “Reason’s Oxymorons,” which are being published for the first time, the book also contains essays on his concepts of “repair” as well as a talk on the topic by the artist.

Both the exhibition and catalogue deal in great depth with historical and current forms of sacrifice with reference to the “politics of fear” that dominates our social situation today.
