Annika Grabold, ich seh' kein außen, Hfg Offenbach, 2022, © Annika Grabold
In her artistic as well as theoretical work, Annika Grabold attempts to come into a relationship with her discomfort that has developed in the course of her art studies in relation to the profession of the artist.[+]
In the book, she negotiates common questions about an authentic life, success and failure, dependencies and inequality of opportunity in the art business, as well as the generation of value and the relationship between art and work, in conversations with nine other artists on the threshold of entering the profession. In addition to this text, which consists of collaged fragments of conversations, nine (self-)portraits of the interlocutors reflect on their own performance within their role as artists.
