Boys! Männer!  Michalis Pichler Lubok Verlag 2013

We proudly present our first new release of the year:

The Berlin based artist and self publisher Michalis Pichler works conceptually, often in series and with vernacular material. 

He uses various media like text, publication, photography and collages but also sculpture and interventions in public space. 

He calls his works «appropriations». This refers to the Appropriation Art, that arose in the 80s in New York. 

Their protagonists deliberately create copies of art works, thus as an independent artistic practice to question the established idea of artistic originality. 

The publication shows 24 full-page reproductions of advertisement pages of magazines. Their profane familiarity is interrupted by cut-outs and collages. 

Boys! Männer! with 24 full-page figures in a four-colour offset print, paperback, 24 pages, 21,6x14,6 cm, edition of 500, 12,- EUR

ARTISTS Prints, Brussels, Komplot 2013

THE DARK WOULD language art anthology

Edited by Philip Davenport

This is a moment in time when poets and many artists share the same primary material: language. Conceptual art, vispo, text art, outsider art, conceptual poetry, flarf, concrete poetry, live art, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, sound scores… THE DARK WOULD is a compelling document of now, alchemising text into art into text.

THE DARK WOULD gathers work by over 100 contributors including some of the most noted artists and poets alive today.

Ed Ruscha, 2013

Organized by Bob Monk, “Ed Ruscha Books & Co.” has been drawn from private collections, including Ruscha’s own. Most of the books are installed so that viewers can interact with them and browse their pages.
