Das Alphabet der Puppen

Camilla Grudova takes us into a scary-magical and grotesquely humorous universe, populated by dolls, sewing machines, tin cans and mirrors, determined by absurd ideologies and strange rules. The artwork on the book cover by Maurizio Anzeri and the typography transport the mix of beauty and distraction in an almost tangible, three dimensional way.

Die Philosophie des Singens

What is singing anyway? Is it an artistic act? What do expression, mirror of the soul or a political act mean? How do animals sing? Is it a difference to sing together or alone in the shower? – 21 authors write about philosophical, poetic and practical aspects of a cultural technique that is always part of our natural expression.
