Information, Manifesto, Rules and other leaks ...
In her works, Angela Bulloch studies the complex operation of rule systems. The work group 'Rules Series', begun in 1992, consists of a continuously growing collection of rules, regulations, and norms. For this publication and the exhibition at Berlinische Galerie, she continued the concept of her 'Rule Series' in several new works.
Under the title Information, Manifesto, Rules and other leaks …, Angela Bulloch chose ten of these texts and transformed them with a new design into monumental wall paintings and prints. In direct reference to works from the Berlinische Galerie, the new layout quotes design elements by El Lissitzky, Hannah Höch, and artists of the November Group. The Big Mac Index, used to compare the buying power of a currency, stands next to instructions for those visiting London’s Downing Street, the guidelines of the November Group and the Italian Mafia’s code of honour.
With texts by Helmut Draxler, Dominic Eichler and Thomas Köhler.
