OS GRABELAND: ETEAM -- FRANZISKA LAMPRECHT AND HAJOE MODEREGGER. Fence Books, 2016. 234 pp. 15 x 20 cm. ISBN 9780986437359 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: In 2004, Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger bought a piece of land they came across on eBay: "It was the cheapest plot in Europe we could find for sale that day. The property was located on the outskirts of a village called Dewitt." OS Grabeland is a document of their travels to and from this strange new property and their interactions with the even stranger people living on it. Selected by Lynne Tillman for the 2015 Fence Modern Prize in Prose, this book is a poignant amalgamation of autobiography, fiction, and photography from Lamprecht's and Moderegger's personal journey -- from property failure to property enlightenment. Equal parts tragic and hilarious, OS Grabeland interrogates the complex value of human curiosity. Lamprecht and Moderegger are a collaborative duo of award-winning artists and filmmakers; together, they make up an artistic practice also known as "eteam." In this, their first collaborative book, Lamprecht and Moderegger explore the difficulties of suddenly becoming landlords in an alien land.
