The Berlin based artist and self-publisher Michalis Pichler works conceptually, often in series and with vernacular material. He uses various media like text, publication, photography and collages but also sculpture and interventions in public space. Pichler calls his works «appropriations». This refers to the Appropriation Art, that arose in the 80s in New York. Their protagonists deliberately create copies of art works, thus as an independent artistic practice to question the established idea of artistic originality.
The publication shows 24 full-page reproductions of advertisement pages of magazines. Their profane familiarity is interrupted by cut-outs and collages.
