No Art Around No Art Around
About the (im)possibility to operate a restaurant as art

Artist book from the dilettantin produktionsbüro

From 2007 to 2010, dilettantin produktionsbüro in Bremen ran the dining room project ‘dreijahre’ (threeyears), a conceptual restaurant, that was based on the question: Can this be art? The book No ART Around is a continuation of this project that carries further the cross-border approach: In both content and form, the publication oscillates between artist book and discourse reader.

The theoretical and literary texts are connected to various image layers which add another substantive and atmospheric colouring. Even the tonality of paper and Pantone print picks up the colour scheme of the place.

With an introduction by Mona Schieren and texts by (amongst others) Elke Bippus, Carsten Brehm, Wolfgang Fuchs, Michael Glasmeier, Harald Lemke, Rolf Thiele, and a conversation with René Block
