Some Case Studies
Sven Johne & Sebastian Orlac
From Edward Snowden and Mark Zuckerberg to a 71-year old German pensioner, Rosa Wolf, along with many other known and unknown people, Anomalies captures the stories of winners, dropouts and outcasts in the early 21st century. Sixty-six stories—some fictional, some documentary and some a hybrid of the two—comprise case studies of ordinary and famous individuals. Each beginning with a compelling quote, these stories are about people who have turned their back on “society,” live self-sufficiently, reject the mainstream or were forced to drop out—the unemployed and homeless, as well as a happy few who have succeeded in the neo-liberal program of capitalization. Told against the backdrop of the global market fundamentalism of the last 25 years, these affecting prose portraits are dedicated to the “fallen souls.” Color images from the Internet of famous and lesser-known figures are included in this compact volume from artist/writers Sven Johne and Sebastian Orlac.
