Essays by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Andrea Kroksnes. Introduction by Sune Nordgren and Susanne Pagé.
Not just anyone gets to be the subject of a Taschen book, and British filmmakers Oliver Payne and Nick Relph are no exception. This is not a Taschen book. But in keeping with the carefree, phantasmagorical attitude that pulsates through their cinematic essays, Payne and Relph have decided to title their book Taschen, thereby adding a Taschen book to their bibliography without actually having to fit the publishing company's profile. Their videos and films reflect the zeitgeist of a young, urban generation, a world in which teenage garage bands bang away, kids grope each other in the subway, and too many people wear those awful masks from Scream. It's not an ironic point of view; as the artists exclaim in gold lettering on the front cover: We don't have the option of turning away from the future.
