CHRONIK DER VORBEILAUFENDEN EREIGNISSE

“Chronicle of events passing by” is the second book out of three dealing with plays by “zweite liga für kunst und kultur”

In the summer of 2013, I kept a record of all of the performances of the play “chronicle of events passing by” by drawing.
On the one hand, the setting took place on a street, the Annenstrasse in Graz, on the other hand in a store, where the audience sat and a second layer of the play happened. Aspects of “passing by”, literally and, lets say biologically, were the essence of the play.

The book, 40 pages, was a D.I.Y. production, printed at Risograd (Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz).
Amongst other books, also this one was finished at studio Leitnergasse, Graz. Helmut Kaplan, Michael Jordan, me and the spirit of Tonto were in the production line.

der druckauftrag

“the print job – fragmented protocol of the play” is the first book out of three dealing with plays by “zweite liga für kunst und kultur”

In autumn 2013, “the print job” was performed at the Volkshaus, Graz. It was about the difficulties of an office staff writing an e-mail together, with the concern “It is over” and with the content of closing down the office. Topics like refusal and self-empowerment were treated.
I kept a record by drawing of three of the performances.

The book, 20 pages, is a D.I.Y. production, printed at Risograd (Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus), finished at studio Leitnergasse, Graz.
Big thanks to Helmut Kaplan and Tonto for helping finishing the book!!!

The episode is some sort of a love story against the environmental background of rural labor.
