Full Scale False Scale (Notes On Experimental Jetset / Volume 3)
Published by Roma Publications
18 x 11 cm, 280 pages, color, offset, glue bound, softcover
Four years after ‘Statement and Counter-Statement’ (2015), Experimental Jetset returns with their second paperback for Roma Publications. Whereas the previous publication had a more overall monographic scope, ‘Full Scale False Scale’ focuses on a single project: the large, site-specific installation that the studio recently created for the Museum of Modern Art in New York, commissioned to coincide with the museum’s reopening in October 2019. Part reader, part collage, the book forms a subjective archive of research material, just as constructed as the installation itself – an investigation that took them from esoteric colour theories to dark political alliances, and from modernist diagonals to postmodern arches.
