Publisher's description: The increasing digitization of museums across the globe is dramatically changing our perception of, and engagement with, these institutions. Formerly only accessible in person and by appointment, these museums and their collections are now available 24/7. German artist Julian Irlinger (b. 1986) addresses this shift with his new artist books Byproducts / Matters. The books are composed of screenshots from more than 100 virtual museums tours made with Google Cultural Institute's Art Project. In order to contrast the economy produced by Google's indifferent flood of images, Irlinger's screenshots have been divided into categories according to criteria highlighting the motif of the incidental becoming image. The title is inspired by Derrids's term 'parergon' (supplement or byproduct), which suggests the atmospheres of banality surrounding artworks. Byproducts / Matters, a unique artist book project, features over 2,000 images plus essays by Canadian writer and curator Tess Edmonton and Berlin-based designer and editor Clemens Jahn.
