Reprint: Appropriation Literature

Annette Gilbert from the Freie Universität Berlin edited a new anthology on books that write through existing literature. Reprint: Appropriation (&) Literature is presented as a bilingual German-English edition and includes good photographs of the books discussed. 

From the publisher: “Since the 1960s, writers have radically challenged the notion of originality and creativity in literature. They stopped writing new texts for their books and instead drew upon pre-existing books: canonical texts of world literature or intellectual history are transcribed by hand, edited, altered, alphabetically arranged or simply copied and republished under one’s own name. By now Appropriation Literature amounts to a critical mass that has generated its own tradition. The present anthology is the first to give an international overview of the phenomenon, presenting 126 books and projects by over 90 authors.”

My books Let us go then, you and I, The Man of the Crowd, In this Dark Wood, The Story of a Young Gentleman and “Speak! eyes – En zie! are discussed in the anthology amidst a plethora of interesting projects.

The Photographer’s Playbook

playbook

The Photographer’s Playbook came out, published by Aperture. It is a very enjoyable and well executed collection of photography assignments, ideas, projects and anecdotes from a huge variety of artists, edited by Jason Fulford and Gregory Halpern. I contributed a conceptual piece cloaked as an assignment. It is titled ‘The Death of the Photographer’.

DSC_7855

I published a short new piece titled ‘A Dialogue’ as a 4-page portfolio in Eikon Magazine.  It is based on my earlier book Mood: Potential. The piece uses the hand and eye of the reader to realize itself. It was made by invitation from Regine Ehleiter and Delphine Bedel who discuss ‘The Book as a Work as an Exhibition as a Book’ in a curated section of the magazine. Eikon Magazine, #86, Vienna, 2014. More images through this link.

In order to shed some light on the nebulous history of The Invisible Book, a set of visible postcards was published. From an early discussion about the book in 1654, to Robert Walser’s sterling 1925 review and Diane Simpson’s legendary marathon reading in 1980, discover some of the highlights in the book’s history through this set of six cards. The set is priced at € 5 plus € 1 shipping anywhere and available in my webshop. Or order by email.
