ARTBOOK & Swiss Institute to Launch 'Imponderable: The Archives of Tony Oursler'
ABOVE: The signed limited edition print, numbered to 66, which will be included with the purchase of each book at the launch and signing.

Since the late 1990s, artist Tony Oursler has amassed a vast personal archive of objects and ephemera relating to magic, the paranormal, film, television, phantasmagoria, pseudoscience and technology. For Oursler, the archive functions as an open visual resource, historical inquiry and–most intriguingly–a family history. This publication features approximately 1,500 objects from Oursler’s collection, including photographs, prints, historic manuscripts, rare books, letters and objects. Additional topics include stage magic, thought photography, demonology, cryptozoology, optics, mesmerism, automatic writing, hypnotism, fairies, cults, the occult, color theory and UFOs.

This catalogue is produced in conjunction with the exhibition “Imponderable: The Archives of Tony Ourslers,” on view at Les Forges, Parc des Ateliers, Arles, France, July 6-September 20, 2015 and LUMA Westbau, Zurich, October 31-February 14, 2016.

Please RSVP to rsvp@swissinstitute.net.

Print image caption: "'Snake Cultists Who Regularly Defy Death...One branch of the Church of God has used poisonous snakes...in religious faith demonstrations... [According to Rev.
