Giving the Story a Treatment

Alex Morrison - Giving the Story a Treatment
The first comprehensive publication on Canadian artist Alex Morrison. Best known for his documentations on the skater culture, Morrison's videos, photographs and drawings take a critical look at the marketing and strategies at work, and reveal the growing aestheticisation of the political within the cultural spectrum.

Born 1972, Alex Morrison lives and works in Berlin & Vancouver.
