History has left the Building
Francis Hunger is a storyteller of the information age who knows how to employ media instruments in his performances and installations. Mysterious radio signals, a ternary computer, the broad field of Soviet space travel, and how all these areas relate to Fordist regimes of production are the focal points of his efforts to grapple with the history of technology and ideology in his art. The catalog reprints a visual essay by Till Gathmann and Francis Hunger that covers the historical era from 1917 to 1990—the beginning and end of socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
