Two Hundred Alternative Facts about Mr T

Posted in Publications by JS on February 8, 2017

I just released a new publication that I made in response to recent events. As its title says, the booklet reveals two hundred little known alternative facts. Count them. They are painstakingly researched and they are true. The full truth about Mr T, all you need to know in this time of fake news and demagogy. This is a great brochure. It’s true. It’s one of the best brochures ever. It’s offered at the fantastic price of just € 3 per copy. And things get better: There is a special unlimited quantity discount – just € 25 for a bundle of 10 copies. Get them for your friends. This very special brochure will only be available as long as Mr T is in office. The day he resigns or gets impeached or assassinated or is replaced by another president, the remaining stock will be sent to hell. Until then a free copy of this great brochure will be included in every book order. And that is a fact. Now available in my shop.

Bilderbuch 2.0

Posted in Publications by JS on January 26, 2017

bilderbuch2-0

The Bilderbuch project draws on an extensive archive of photographs taken from newspapers, magazines, books etc. that I have been gathering over more than 40 years. A selection from this ongoing collection of printed matter, removed from the original context and presented without any comment, was first published in book form in 2012. Bilderbuch 2.0 is an expanded remix of the book’s first edition. The book is now available in my shop.

Vom Gehen

Vom Gehen

In late autumn 1974, Werner Herzog walked from Munich to Paris. In the logbook of his journey he mentioned the village I grew up in and that I had left a few months before he passed through it. His three words in Vom Gehen im Eis / Of Walking in Ice are possibly the only literary mention of the village. Forty-two years later I repeated one leg of Werner Herzog’s walk. The little book I made about the walk is now available in my shop.

[logo] SUCKS

Posted in Publications by JS on July 12, 2016

Logo Sucks1

There are two kinds of things in the world, things that are ok and things that suck. Many of the things that suck are strictly speaking not really things. They are companies or services. It’s not a big surprise that many of these are related to the internet. These amorphous entities are the pillars of the digital universe. Amazon sucks, Facebook sucks, Google sucks, and so do all the other companies that infiltrated modern life and that seem to be so indispensable in present age. For the contemporaries who share the feeling that these things suck I made a set of prints. Each print is based on the logo of one of the entities that suck. They are linocuts printed in editions of 20 copies.
18 linocuts in a semi-archival box, hand-printed on 120 gr acid-free dorée paper, 29.5 x 21 cm each, stamped with archival ink. Edition of 20 copies, 450 € (+ shipping by registered mail), available in the shop (price to increase as edition sells).
