Verdensteatret: Telling Orchestra and Funeral Machine
Verdensteatret: Telling Orchestra and Funeral Machine

This catalogue presents two installations at the Guangzhou Museum by the Norwegian art group Verdensteatret. Their work—dense kinetic installations populated by robots created out of electronic junk—is immersive and time-based. Building on this, the catalogue begins and ends with dramatic full-image sections of each installation, with all essays and contextualizing materials in the center of the book. Two separate flip-books show the installations in motion. The book’s typographic system employs a classical serif in conjunction with the 1990s typeface Dead History. At once refined and mixed-up, the two typefaces play with and off one another as they form the basis for book’s essays and accompanying texts.
