Form your Character, Hammann von Mier’s most recent artist’s book, contextualizes and presents their collaborative work as artists and publishers. Reflections on their own practice are linked, specified and explored with materials from extended visits in the USA – in particular a two-month research stay in New York, 2018. The publication concentrates on two central themes: the interrogation of the possibilities and conditions of being an artist (focusing on “”survival strategies”” outside of the art market), and the relationship between artistic work and politics considered via self-positioning to current events in New York and Munich. The resulting artist’s book consists of five diverse parts and is based on elements of the Zine culture. Form your Character! was made possible by the FLAT Preis-CRT Art Foundation 2017, Turin, Italy.
