The artist Oliver Ressler is politically active. He researches his works worldwide in order to analyze economic behaviors and forms of political organization. Many of his items focus on forms of resistance that can be found in the so-called »anti-globalization« movement. Ressler’s work is characterized by the presentation of alternatives to the status quo, which are conveyed as courses of action in his films, photographs and installations.

The publication documents Oliver Ressler's artistic work over the last 15 years and is appearing to mark the occasion of his solo exhibitions in LENTOS Kunstmuseum, Linz, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), Berlin, ar/ge kunst Galerie Museum, Bozen and Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo–CAAC, Sevilla.

With texts by T.J. Demos, Katarzyna Kosmala, Suzana Milevska, and Marco Scotini.
