Various Fires - and Four Running Boys

Thomas Galler
Edition Fink
Artists' Books
40 × 50 × 0.5 cm

Galler’s work examines notions of media representation and of authorship and exchange around found materials from a position of societal critique and mass culture.

A collection of images of the artist’s own production since 1999 combined with those appropriated from newspaper and magazine images (the ‘Fires’)

Excerpts are taken from news-report images of global crises and political unrest that featured fires and which changed societal interactions beyond the affected regions.

Galler’s book references Ed Rucha’s 1964 bookwork ‘Various Small Fires.’
