Apple, An Introduction (Over and Over and Once Again)
Developed by German artist Antje Majewski (b. 1968) and Polish conceptual artist Pawel Freisler (b. 1942) over the course of their five-year correspondence, Apple is an artistic, scientific, cultural and historical project. The well-illustrated catalog, published in conjunction with exhibitions at Museum Abteiberg and Muzeum Sztuki (2015), ties together collaborative, associative projects, films, sculptures, installations, conversations and a community tree planting by Majewski, Freisler and other international artists including Jimmie Durham, Agnieszka Polska and Piotr Zycienski. The remarkable range of Freisler’s collection of carved, dried apples and Majewski’s paintings of different apple varieties highlight the idea of diversity and the complex relationship between global food economy and technological progress in science and a capitalist world economy. Contributions by Jimmie Durham, Anders Ettinger, Paweł Freisler, Fundacja Transformacja, Katherine Gibson, Antje Majewski, Ethan Miller, Agnieszka Polska, Joanna Sokołowska, Susanne Titz and Piotr Życieński.
