Nicholas Bussmann – Instructions

Nicholas Bussmann Revolution Songs in an AI Environment
&
The News Trilogy

In the beginning there was an instruction, 
initiating a moment of play which took the form of a book;
a book that emerged out of a solo exhibition held by Nicholas Bussmann
at the TAXISPALAIS Kunsthalle Tirol.

Several games and ‘plays’ were staged in the exhibition,
where repetitions of repetitions
were repeated
again
and then again.
How can the practice of the artist be translated into the form of a book?
Bussmann answered this question by incorporating his generative model
of programmatic instructions into the book itself.
The elements that typically form Bussmann’s games remain at play here.
The reiteration of world-building, as with the sung news or the series of iterative texts
in an artist book, let flash in their collision the idea of a bigger picture—
not yet drawn, uncannily complex and heterotopic,
but nonetheless a powerful stance for imaginative action.
