SET OF 3 BOOKS - Altered Secession Catalogue: Michael Krebber (J Mascis + Pussy + ~~~) - Brian Kennon

80 USD

Published on the occasion of the 2017 exhibition Brian Kennon at Motto at Motto Berlin, these three artists' books were made from 2013 through 2016 and mark the 6th, 7th, and 8th iteration of the Altered Secession Catalogue series Kennon began in 2011.  

Altered Secession Catalogue - Michael Krebber (J Mascis) adds images of Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Masics throughout the book as an attempt to establish a link between Krebber's painting and Mascis' persona as an unemotive, slovenly yet virtuosic guitar hero.

Altered Secession Catalogue - Michael Krebber (Pussy) replaces all the images within the original Krebber catalogue with cropped/close-up images of female genitalia found online. While absurdist in intent, the book inadvertently creates a survey of how "pussy" has been photographed for pornography over the past 50+ years.

Altered Secession Catalogue - Michael Krebber (~~~) leaves the original Krebber catalogue intact, only adding a pair of found comics to the final pages of the book.

All three books are published in an undefined edition.
