Edition Patrick Frey
First monograph dedicated to the long forgotten German artist Josef Maria Schröder. Starting as a painter during the interwar period, Schröder then developed a ballpoint pen technique with which he produced intensely luminous abstract compositions and portraits of a surrealist/constructivist cast. These late works are featured in this volume, which includes original documents from the artist's estate.

Originally released by Multhipla Records, The Entire Musical Work of Marcel Duchamp is a collection of experimental pieces composed in 1913 by the legendary artist, and executed by Petr Kotik and the S.E.M. Ensemble in 1976.
Employing chance operations and non-musical sounds, Marcel Duchamp's musical oeuvre predated some radical concepts developed forty years later by John Cage.

Sternberg Press – Fiction
Erudite, baroque, a dazzling writer and painter but maniacal and all-encompassing in his approach, Roee Rosen keeps erasing the fine line that separates fiction and truth, imagination and reality, just as Sade and Lautréamont have done before him. But this division doesn't exist anymore. What makes his summa erotica erotic is that, for him as for Georges Bataille, pornography is philosophy.
