book presentation by Stefan Riebel and unknown.artists.collective
About the event
Every day since May 2012 Stefan Riebel chooses one e-mail from his spam folder and passes it on to his "myspam-e-mail-list" and to various social media platforms. The continuously growing text archive is the feedstock for further activities and projects.
Since 2015 Riebel invites various musicians and sound artists to collaborate and to develop soundwork based on one of the spam pieces collected. The soundworks are edited as single LP records and presented in various concerts and exhibition situations.
Some of the spam mails are now published in a book and will be on show for the event.
Stefan Riebel is a concept artist living and working in Berlin and Leipzig, Germany. His works are process-driven, performative, poetic and often operate in series. His practice focuses on interventions in existing infrastructures as well as designing social spaces and interactive events.
