look inside


Un Coup de Dés Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard (A Throw of the Dice will Never Abolish Chance) is a book by Michalis Pichler published 2008/09 in Berlin. The work is a close copy of the 1914 edition of the french symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé's poem of the same name, but with all the words cut out by laser, in a way that corresponds directly to the typographic layout used by Mallarmé to articulate the text*.

press release:

Learn to Read Art: A History of Printed Matter features a selection of artists’ books and editions from the history of the independent, non-profit organization Printed Matter in New York. The exhibition was curated by AA Bronson and is the first presentation outside of the USA and Canada. We are extremely pleased that AA Bronson will be present at the opening and that he will introduce his selection for the Badischer Kunstverein!

Ever since its establishment in 1976 by Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard and others, Printed Matter has focused on the investigation and support of artists’ publications as an independent format of contemporary art production.

FAX invites a multigenerational group of artists, as well as architects, designers, scientists and filmmakers, to conceive of the fax machine as a tool for thinking and drawing. Although the technology for transmitting printed images and texts over distance dates from the nineteenth century—a machine by Scottish mechanic Alexander Bain patented in 1843—it was the introduction of the modern fax through commercially available machines in the 1970s that turned facsimiles into a ubiquitous communications medium for international business.
