Texte zur Kunst no. 111 (September 2018) has a thematic section on “Amerika.” In the review section, I discuss the ehxibition Trade Markings at the Van Abbemuseum, curated by Vivian Ziherl.
A correction: in one passage in the review, the name Gordon Hookey got mangled to read Gordon Murray – no doubt a short-circuit in my brain due to his Murriland! series. Also, in the interest of giving credit where credit is due: Rachel O’Reilly’s project was made in collaboration with PALACE, Valle Medina & Benjamin Reynolds.
