André Butzer
Press Releases, Letters, Conversations, Texts, Poems, 1999-2017

For this divertingly profound or profoundly diverting volume, editor Alexander Linn has gathered an abundant selection of press releases, letters, interviews and conversations, prose, and poetry by painter André Butzer. Born in Stuttgart in 1973, he was co-founder of Academy Isotrop in Hamburg in the mid-nineties, and rose to become one of the internationally most influential as well as controversial painters after 2000.
The texts span the years from 1999 to 2017 and have been, in most cases, long out of print or difficult to reach. Brought together for the first time, Butzer’s writings form a concise account of his artistic thinking. The book offers thus an intimate and personal insight into his painterly formation and practice, particularly its relation to 20th century mass culture, to the history of painting, to poetry, or to »the regular utopia, what else« – making it an invaluable source of reference for both the scholarly and the passionate reader.

André Butzer
Press Releases, Letters, Conversations, Texts, Poems Volume 3: 1999–2021

All good things come in threes and so do André Butzer’s collected writings. The third volume is elegantly sharp and poignant. Editor Alexander Linn continues to explore the unique fictitious universe, Butzer calls »NASAHEIM«. Boldly touching on the latter’s own work and biography, art history as well as music in numerous letters, in-depth conversations and poems. Guided by the simple question: What is real?, Butzer searches for »the actual location of painting, the space in-between. It’s a very esoteric but easy to understand conception of truth.«
