A project for MULTImART | eSeL

(German page)

(laser print of bootleg photographic image in mounted frame; 100 different captions; 30x30 cm)

In this age of digital reproductivity, the aura of art is in bad shape.
Image sharing! Collapse of context! Randomness! Loss of significance!
monochrom, who have always had a fondness for written-off media, will put back into focus the contextualisation of artworks.  We guarantee that every piece of this edition will have its individual autonomous caption!  Each object of the replicated image motif is going to be thoroughly recontextualised and individually entitled! Profit of distinction for our hyperindividual clientele! Captions of the world, unite!

How do I buy? How much is a print?

All 100 captions:
