An engrossing collection of writings and interviews by Berlin-based artist Peter Friedl brings together – for the first time – wide-ranging work dating back almost 30 years. As in his artworks, Friedl’s writings quote from and re-work multiple genres, offering reviews and portraits of George Sand, Clarice Lispector and Jean-Luc Goddard; examining theater, film and art history through the work of Robert Wilson, Yoko Ono and Glauber Rocha; and expanding and reflecting on his own projects. Alongside these are essays delving deep into the past, exploring mainly colonial history and its paradoxical traces in the present through narratives about Haiti, South Africa and Italy’s repressive colonial rule in Africa. A mind-expanding reader from one of the art world’s great contemporary thinkers, author of Four or Five Roses and Working at Copan.
