A monograph published on the occasion of Paul Pfeiffer's solo exhibition at Sammlung Goetz in Munich, it highlights Pfeiffer‘s works which are primarily concerned with the mass media phenomena of our globalised society, such as celebrities, sports spectacles and cinema classics. Pfeiffer works entirely on the basis of existing images, as well as film and sound sequences. He uses digital processing techniques to manipulate original images in various ways, raising questions of identity, self-fashioning and mass media dependence.
This monograph includes an introduction by Ingvild Goetz, essays by Cornelia Gockel, Stephan Urbaschek, and a conversation between Paul Pfeiffer and Hal Foster.
