Published by Hatje Cantz, Berlin, 2002, 192 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23 × 26 cm, English / German

Price: €22

Produced on the occasion of Cosima von Bomin’s exhibition Fondorientierte Ausstattung (Fund-oriented Equipment) at Neue Galerie, Graz, 27 October – 1 December, 2002.

“The fact that Poul Gernes once built a ship in order simply to burn it on the open sea, and that Bas Jan Ader set off alone in a small sailing boat in 1975 in order to cross the Atlantic in 60 days, a project that ended in his vanishing without trace, allows Cosima von Bonin’s “skerry cruiser”, stranded in all pomp and elegance here in Graz, to appear not only as a metaphor for unfettered proliferation and boundless world domination but, above all, as a symbol of failure, of misadventure, perhaps even of hubris.” Neue Galerie, Graz, press release.
