Nicholas Bussmann

Bussmann Cover

In the beginning there was an instruction, initiating a moment of play which took the form of a book; a book that emerged out of a solo exhibition held by Nicholas Bussmann at the TAXISPALAIS Kunsthalle Tirol. Several games and ‘plays’ were staged in the exhibition, where repetitions of repetitions were repeated again and then again.

About the product

How can the practice of the artist be translated into the form of a book? Bussmann answered this question by incorporating his generative model of programmatic instruction to the book itself. The elements that typically form Bussmann’s games remain at play here.

The reiteration of world-building, as with the sung news or the series of iterative texts in an artist book, let flash in their collision the idea of a bigger picture—not yet drawn, uncannily complex and heterotopic, but nonetheless a powerful stance for imaginative action.
