leni hoffmann beautiful one day — perfect the next

Discipline: Communication

The artist Leni Hoffmann works mainly site-specifically. In recent years, she realised a series of spectacular works in public. Working with coloured plasticine and other all day materials, Leni Hoffman comes to astonishing solutions and expression forms. Her sculptural-architectonic works link space and wall, image and ground, grasp on the viewer and burst genre borders.
The publication was designed to reflect on the book as a medium on the intersection between artisan tradition and industrial feasibility. One main aim was to translate bookbinding into industrial series production. Choreography, graphic design and production were to satisfy documentary purposes as well as highly aesthetic and functional-haptic claims. At the same time, as an artist book the publication was to reflect Leni Hoffmann’s artistic credo, her philosophical and political considerations.
