Artistbooks — individual [1983-ongoing]

Presenting ARTISTBOOKS is a difficult task. Most often vitrines are used to avoid damage. In the mid 1990’s I had the idea of producing videos of all my artistbooks for an exhibition in Linz. You would see a hand turning page after page. The videos were made with a Hi8 analogue camera in PAL. Luckily the master tape survived, so you can see the videos in original ‘quality’ by clicking on the links with arrows.
The pdf file artistbooks (individual) (1.5MB) gives a summary of each book.
