Ines Doujak Twisted Language
|Ines Doujak, ed

In the context of Ines Doujak's exhibition Geistervölker, Kunsthalle Wien and Sternberg Press publish a book that looks deeply into the artist's practice. In the exhibition, curated by What, How & for Whom / WHW, the artist traced, in fragments, the origins of pandemics throughout history and linked them to a global economy that is based on logics of extraction facilitated by colonial legal mechanisms and late capitalism. These subjects have always been present in Doujak's works. Therefore, it felt crucial to have a book that allows several writers, theoreticians, and poets from different geographies to reflect on the political and aesthetic strategies that Doujak has been using during these past thirty years. The book is not a monograph nor a catalogue but rather a mosaic of texts in dialogue with Ines Doujak's Oeuvre, which engage with burning and urgent topics such as how we relate to the world around us and to each other.
