Ursula Bogner – Sonne = Black Box

Volume: 126 pages
Format: 14.5 x 21
Price: 15.00 

The book “Sonne = Black Box,” published by Fantôme, attempts to culturally and historically situate the work of the sound explorer Ursula Bogner. Special emphasis is given to the phenomenon of fake: How did the suspicion of fake in Ursula Bogner’s case come about, and what is a post-fake? Answers can be found in this book.

Since 2008, when the public first heard of Ursula Bogner’s work, many rumors have been circulating about her as a person. Bogner’s graphic work has been featured in exhibitions (Laura Mars Gallery, Berlin 2009; CEACC, Strasbourg, France, 2011; xhibit, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, 2013; etc.), and her compositions have been performed in public (by Mo Loschelder, Andrew Pekler, Kassian Troyer, Jan Jelinek, and others).

“Sonne = Black Box” contains drawings, photos, and other curiosities documenting Bogner’s life, an introduction by Jan Jelinek, texts by Momus, Andrew Pekler, Tim Tetzner, Bettina Klein, and interviews with the orgone researcher Jürgen Fischer and the ethnologist Kiwi Menrath.
“Sonne = Black Box” is also available as special-edition box set (containing the book and a CD).
