Four years after ‘Statement and Counter-Statement’ (2015), Experimental Jetset returned in 2019 with their second paperback Full Scale False Scale Notes on Experimental Jetset /Vol.3 for Roma Publications.
Whereas the previous publication had a more overall monographic scope, ‘Full Scale False Scale’ focuses on a single project: the large, site-specific installation that the studio created for the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Part reader, part collage, the book forms a subjective archive of research material.
Although second in the series, Superstructures Notes on Experimental Jetset /Vol.2 (2020) is their third paperback in this self-reflective series. An inquiry into the role of the city as an infrastructure for language and vice versa., seen through the lens of four significant movements: Constructivism, Situationist International, Provo, and Post-Punk. The book also features extensive footnotes by 20 guest authors.
All three pocketbooks clearly manifest how cultural engagement, political commitment and curiosity about contextual background play an important role in their work.
