Bernhard Cella
Edition Ostblick
Artists' Books
17 × 22 × 2.2 cm

Bernhard Cella is interested in the general economic and sculptural conditions under which artist’s books can serve as artistic material. To this end, in 2007 he devised in his studio the Salon für Kunstbuch – a 1:1 scale model of a bookshop which he has been running in the “21er Haus” in Vienna since 2011. Here he has assembled a collection of 9,000 artist’s books, which he constantly rearranges into unaccustomed combinations, so that they enter into material dialogue. Buying and selling become part of his independent artistic practice.


Signed and numbered complete set of 3 books, edition of 500
