Artists‘ Book | Franz Thalmair, VIE 02/01/17—03/31/17 TYO and MARCUS BOON, IN PRAISE OF COPYING (CAMBRIDGE, MA: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2010), 1-285 (Revolver Publishing, Berlin 2019)

Fresh from the press!

Last week I visited Franz in his office at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and he gave me two of his brand new artists‘ books for the library: VIE 02/01/17 – 03/31/17 TYO andMARCUS BOON, IN PRAISE OF COPYING (CAMBRIDGE, MA: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2010), 1-285 (you have to wait until 2019 – it’s okay to be jealous hehehe)

VIE 02/01/17 – 03/31/17 TYO is comprised of a collection, selection, and recombination of graphical elements gathered during a journey to Japan. Franz Thalmair photocopied, manipulated and manually reproduced all found materials.

The books are part of the artistic research projectoriginalcopy – Post-Digital Strategies of Appropriation“, which runs from 2016 to 2019 at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and sheds light on the practice of copying from a post-digital perspective. The research project focuses on the tensions between the supposed immateriality of digital technologies and their material manifestations by appropriating contemporary methods of copying and exposing them to artistic processes of transformation and translation.
