The Vienna Guide
Tony Cokes
saxpublishers - 24.00€ -  out of stock

The Vienna Guide is conceptually built upon ‘travel notes” compiled and edited on the occasion by artist Tony Cokes. Adopting the point of view of the flaneur, Cokes creates a speculative image of Vienna by appropriating and meshing non-art, historical figures, touristic clichés and club nights, all entwined in technological commentary. This distant gaze – Cokes hasn’t visited Vienna in the last 20 years – facilitates an aerial view of the complexities and unique traits that characterizes it. Commissioned by Attilia Fattori Franchini the Guide proposes to approach Vienna – and any urban site – as a discursive platform for future possibilities and identities.

The Vienna Guide by Tony Cokes comprises 3 stickers of video stills of Cokes’ videos Could you visit me in dreams? (2018), published in an edition of 150 + 25.

In the Stomach of the Predators
Alice Creischer
saxpublishers - 22.00€ -  out of stock

A selection of 22 texts that were written between 1989-2019 that problematize Creischer's constant struggle for a vocabulary to analyze and criticize, to comment and intervene in the social fabric she finds herself surrounded by. Rather than neatly discriminating between form and content, between emancipation and information, Creischer's lessons suggest various ways of inscribing one into the other of juxtaposing opposing poles.

Alice Creischer is a German artist, writer and theorist. Her artistic practice and theoretical work focuses on issues of economic and institutional critique, globalization and the history of capitalism.
