The new edition by Norbert Bisky was printed with a leaflet printing machine in hand prints. This was the printing technique of political resistance in the 20th century. In the GDR, thousands of leaflets and illegal writings were printed and reproduced by hand in this way.
The hectograph which is exhibited in Bisky’s solo exhibition DISINFOTAINMENT at G2 Kunsthalle is the very machine that produced the prints.
Bisky chose the title DISINFOTAINMENT in a nod to G2 Kunsthalle’s architectural history—when construction on the building began, in 1986, it was meant to house a municipal data processing center—and the show turns the spotlight on the use of data and information in a world ruled by digital technology.
