Hans-Peter Wipplinger (Ed.)
Conceptual, multi-media artist Thomas Feuerstein (born 1968) revels in the contradictory spaces between art and science, fact and fiction, and individuality and community. In this extensively illustrated exhibition catalog, the Austrian-born Feuerstein focuses on one of the big personalities of the wild 1920s, Arthur Cravan, a boxer, magazine editor, Dadaist and dandy. Half a century later, Cravan stalked idol-like through the history of Pop and fed the myth of the anarchic anti-hero. The artist’s exuberant work features biology, literature, art history, philosophy, medicine, cybernetics, religion, sex, economics and mass media, and the impact of bio-politics on the individual and the dream of eternal youth. With texts by Elisabeth Bronfen, Candyman, Gerhard J. Lischka, Astrid Mania and an interview with Sabeth Buchmann.
