finger in the pie
bankleer, Karin Kasböck & Christoph Maria Leitner (Eds.)
A carnival game played by drunken visitors to Munich’s Oktoberfest is used in a video as a metaphor for the German economy: that’s just one of the recent projects by Karin Kasböck and Christoph Maria Leitnerthe, the Berlin-based, anti-capitalist artistic duo known as bankleer. Defying easy classification, their provocative work may encompass performances, docu-fictional videos and other techniques of “expanded cinema,” editorial and curatorial projects, sculptures and drawings. This substantive monograph, produced for MOCA Leipzig, features in-depth essays and more than 450 photographs that highlight the collective’s recent projects and deployments. Essays by Nataša Ilic (WHW), Daniela Stöppel, Diedrich Diederichsen, Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) and Dietrich Heißenbüttel.
