Zustandskatalog: Catalog of States and Conditions
Edited by Reto Pulfer, Nikola Dietrich
Texts by Anselm Franke, Benoit Maire, Reto Pulfer
In the style of a catalogue raisonne, Reto Pulfer's comprehensive monograph, Zustandskatalog: Catalog of States and Conditions, follows the artist's work over the past fifteen years. Excerpts from the artist's novels as well as insightful texts by Anselm Franke and Benoit Maire are juxtaposed with 475 documentary photographs of Pulfer's technical drawings, one-off exhibitions, large-scale installations, and performances. Categories such as living ceramics, food advice, ghostology, synesthesia, and transformation are woven throughout the book, giving unique insight into the ideas and imagination that are part of the work itself.
