British conceptual artist Jonathan Monk and Berlin haubrok foundation are connected through a long-standing friendship and a thriving relation, resulting in joint projects and exhibitions. Monk’s printed matter—numerous publications, invitation cards, gallery guides, posters, and editions—is an integral part of the haubrok collection. Hence, Jonathan Monk: A Bit of Matter and a Little Bit More, published in the wake of the haubrok foundation's exhibition on the grounds of FAHRBEREITSCHAFT in Berlin-Lichtenberg, is an ode to this friendship and to Monk's conceptual approach of incorporating ephemera and artistic artifacts into his practice. The publication provides an archival, yet personal, overview of Monk's printed matter, complemented by a commentary by the art critic Raimar Stange.

JONATHAN MONK (*1969, Leicester) is a contemporary conceptual artist living and working in Berlin. He restages and re-examines seminal works of 20th century Conceptual and Minimal art, reflecting on appropriation and demystifying the creative process. While he is often working with media such as photography, sculpture, video, performance and mail art, printed matter is an integral part of his artistic practice.
