Hunger - Epilogue

@ Ackerman, Michael



Presentation by VOID:

"After 7 issues and 28 artists published, Hunger comes to an end with its epilogue: a solo publication by Michael Ackerman.

« Time, in its great disarray, is a specialty of Michael Ackerman. His work respects and destroys it. » 

-- Jem Cohen

Hunger – Epilogue is the first Ackerman's publication since his acclaimed book Half Life (Delpire, 2010). Featuring works from his debut project End Time City, to works that have never seen the light of day so far, Epilogue is a recollection of Ackerman's past and future universe. The text by Jem Cohen, Michael's old friend, gives the reader an insider's view of the artist's work and personality.

The publication, comes with more than 130 images (many of which, unseen), and is a unique opportunity to sneak into the artist's latest unpublished works. Printed in massive broadsheet size, Epilogue is the chance to see Ackerman's work in an unusual upscale dimension, allowing us to get lost in the labyrinths of his images."

Text by Jem Cohen in English only.
