titleI am ordering marble to make cement
authorAlfons Knogl
size20 × 26 cm
price25 €

This artist’s book focuses on the studio practice of Alfons Knogl. What does sculpture mean if materiality in itself is defined by global production and transportation strategies? What if the effects of ordering things online are already on the same level as philosophical thinking about categories we create for objects in our mind? Cement is the most produced „thing“ on earth but it has to be made out of solid natural limestone. Nike is the biggest producer of sportswear but it has to be a solid attitude first. Who decides to produce a specific torch in endless variation for all 99cent shops? And if we wanna know, do we see things differently then?
