I am ordering marble to make cement
Alfons Knogl, 2017

Hammann & Von Mier Verlag, Munich

96 pages, 4/4 color offset print, softcover with poster dust jacket, 20 x 26 cm

This artist book focuses on the studio practice of Alfons Knogl. What does sculpture mean if materiality in itself is defined by global production and transportation strategies? What if the effects of ordering things online are already on the same level as philosophical thinking about categories we create for objects in our mind? Cement is the most produced "thing" on earth but it has to be made out of solid natural limestone. Nike is the biggest producer of sportswear but it has to be a solid attitude first. Who decides to produce a specific torch in endless variation for all 99cent shops? And if we wanna know, do we see things differently then?
