Exploring African influences on modernist avant-gardes, Sa‚dane Afif (born 1970) riffs on Andrť Bretonís anthology of the same name for this catalogue accompanying his show at MMK Zollamt. For the show, Afif built a coffin based on a Ghanian memento mori, and invited artists and critics to respond.

Taking off from Sa‚dane Afif's 2008 Witte de With exhibition Technical Specifications, this volume examines the artist's practice in relation to music. In addition to tracing the evolution and reconfigurations of the works in the show, it includes documentation of Afif's radio show, 53:56--which broadcast related words and songs.

Displacement and contrast, classification and the unclassifiable, toys--Sa‚dane Afif is one of the most inventive contemporary artists working in France, and his work, which employs objects, scale models, sound and writing, can transform an installation into a song, an Andrť Cadere sculpture into a lightshow or a guitar into a clock.
