This book catalogues a selection of work by German artist Johannes Albers that was exhibited in Berlin in November 2008. Albers' works feature in Damien Hirst's Murderme art collection, including several of the pieces illustrated in the book. Reproducing images of popular culture and everyday domesticity, Johannes Albers' work seems to simultaneously praise and poke fun at modern-day interests and values. Albers' work has encompassed a range of motifs, from bathmats to band tapes, ping-pong tables to Stanley knives. His incessant reproduction of these images reflects – and criticises – the disposability of much of today's media culture and marketing imagery.
