German and English Text
With this exceptionally voluminous issue, Parkett celebrates its 30th anniversary and is joined by the „collaborations“ of the five artists Tauba Auerbach, Urs Fischer, Cyprien Gaillard, Ragnar Kjartansson and Shirana Shahbazi. The marked interest in repetition and standards shared by these artists underlies their view of the fundamentals that seem to determine our lives, leading them to discover surprising and unprecedented potential behind universally familiar patterns, as the authors of the in-depth essays respectively take up. The issue also holds a feature on the theme of „performance“. Selected aspects of the medium are examined, which take place not only in our heads but also in our bodies due to the technological changes in our everyday lives.
