Theo Deutinger: Handbook of Tyranny at MoMA PS1

Saturday, June 16 at 4PM, Lars Müller Publishers and the Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Book Space invite you to a presentation, discussion and book signing to celebrate the publication of Theo Deutinger's Handbook of Tyranny.

Theo Deutinger: Handbook of Tyranny at MoMA PS1

Theo Deutinger's Handbook of Tyranny portrays the routine cruelties of the twenty-first century through a series of detailed non-fictional graphic illustrations. None of these cruelties represent extraordinary violence — they reflect day-to-day implementation of laws and regulations around the globe.

Every page of the book questions our current world of walls and fences, police tactics and prison cells, crowd control and refugee camps. The dry and factual style of storytelling through technical drawings is the graphic equivalent to bureaucratic rigidity born of laws and regulations. The level of detail depicted in the illustrations of the book mirror the repressive efforts taken by authorities around the globe.

The twenty-first century shows a general striving for an ever more regulated and protective society. Yet the scale of authoritarian intervention and their stealth design adds to the growing difficulty of linking cause and effect. Handbook of Tyranny gives a profound insight into the relationship between political power, territoriality and systematic cruelties.

THEO DEUTINGER is an architect, writer and designer of sociocultural maps. He has regular lecture and teaching engagements with various institutions, including Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Strelka Institute Moscow and the Bauhaus in Dessau.

The MoMA PS1 Book Space is on the first floor of the museum.

This event is free and open to the public! Pre-prder signed copies with free shipping in the continental U.S. via email at booksmomaps1@artbook.com.
