The book Unknown Ideals offers an inquiry into Zach Blas’s singular practice through a series of newly commissioned essays by Alexander R. Galloway, Pamela M. Lee, Mahan Moalemi, Kris Paulsen, an interview with Zach Blas by Övül Durmuşoğlu, and writings by the artist himself. These insightful contributions expand on the technological, queer, filmic, and cultural inquiries that comprise the rich world of Blas’s practice, exemplary among his generation of digital artists.
Organized by Edith-Russ-Haus in collaboration with the 12th Berlin Biennale
