The catalogue essay for the Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven BOC publication takes the form of a theatrical script. It’s called Everything Seemed So Possible and has a prologue and four acts that examine changing relationships with time and media culture. For the prologue, I combined parts of major essays on postmodernism by writers such as Jean Baudrillard, Clement Greenberg and Jürgen Habermas. They have a fictitious conversation about what ever happened to postmodernism.

Our friends Danny and David Tuss of the Brooklyn-based band umbrella men wrote original musical scores for the prologue and each act. The scores are printed in the publication. And, we just received recordings for two songs! We’re pretty excited that this music will accompany the performance in Vienna at  Salon für Kunstbuch 21er Haus in October.
