Publisher's description: A work of both art and theory, Aesthetic Basic Chronicle is a visual and conceptual encyclopedia composed of hundreds of object installations, displays, and projects by the Austrian artist/curator/editorial team Kruger & Pardeller. Aligning itself with a socially activated political understanding of aesthetics and organized alphabetically by concepts such as abstraction, accumulation, activation pixel, polarization, position, uncertainty, universal and variable, the book invites a consideration of the political and social motives behind classification. Essays by Sabeth Buchmann, Johan Frederik Hartle, Kathi Hofer, Ilse Lafer, Marin Prinzhorn, Ruth Sonderegger, and George Toepfer thoughtfully examine Kruger & Pardeller's oeuvre in relation to the role of "situation-specific" art, institutional critique and the space of the book.
