Demian Bern

The good fellow, 2010

What defines an edition?
Within the pages of Demian Bern’s series of 10 handmade artist books you are able to follow the whole production of the books. You see the artist going to the forest. You see him putting up a generator and a computer, printing the pages, binding them, gluing them to the hardcover and finally you see him meeting the hunter, who loads the weapon in order to shoot a bullet through all the ten books. The good fellow represents a self-referential system brought to a final end. In the end the bullet gets stuck in the last copy.
