Produktionsprojekte

How to find a language for a restless form? The artist book ‘Produktionsprojekte’ was designed in intensive dialogue with the artist. It represents the artist’s works, but also his experimental working method through the page layout, the dynamic arrangement of the images and the repetitive use of typography. The catalogue also contains its own typo-/graphic interpretations of Samuel Treindl’s working method. Due to the elaborate printing and binding technique, the catalogue itself becomes a ‘production project’.
