James Hoff, Marian Kaiser

“ ” #2 James Hoff / Marian Kaiser


In a white cottage at the edge of what is often mistakenly referred to as the Vigeland Park, Oslo, in early January 2016, artist James Hoff and writer Marian Kaiser discuss sounds, images, language, and the events that produce them: distribution channels; anecdotes; heavenly rays; Stuxnet; ghosting; feedback; riots; mission creep; Amok as a colonial construction. How did the culture-bound syndrome cross the Atlantic? Is the book still the endgame?

Edited by Adam Gibbons and Eva Wilson, “ ” (quotation mark quotation mark) is a series of books that looks at the forms and roles of publishing as and within artists’ practices. Each issue initiates a dialogue with an artist or artist group, through which a body of work is introduced. The series hosts conversations with artists who work at the intersection of publishing and exhibition-making: through circulation, dissemination, spamming, dispersion, print, data, language, myth, parasiting and infiltration.
