Marcel Odenbach/Klaus vom Bruch: Tango to the bloodletting

RealismusStudio produced this small book on the Cologne artists Marcel Odenbach and Klaus vom Bruch whose approaches are marked by a critical analysis of the inherent dynamics of societal and technoscientific developments, of objective and individual history, and of their own autobiographies. Odenbach’s videos, drawings, collages, photographic works, and installations revolve around the key problem of the bourgeoisie, its ossification within ordering principles and formalizations. The book presents Odenbach’s project Die einen den anderen (The ones the others) and vom Bruch’s Die klassische Mechanik (Classical Mechanics), a foldout text-image collage on belief in technology and the cult of machines. With texts by Noemi Smolik and Barbara Straka.
