Eva Weinmayr's art makes use of the sensationalist headlines blared out in the populist British press day after day.
Artist Eva Weinmayr, who works with leftovers, designs, and fragments of the information society, is primarily interested in language. For years she has been collecting "teaser bills" - those abbreviated and exaggerated posters hawking the headlines of the day - from the London Evening Standard, and using them as a starting point for her work. In a fragmentary and associative text written especially for this book, artist Gustav Metzger reflects on Weinmayr's work and documents the ongoing dialogue between their very different artistic positions, which both focus on social processes. This artist's book, edited by Florian Matzner and designed by Zylvia Auerbach, succeeds in capturing this fleeting dialogue and the exciting tension underlying it.
