This publication brings together two early works by Austrian artist Heimo Zobernig, Farben (Colours), an artist book first published some thirty years ago, and Alphabet, a series of twenty-six photographs taken in the early 1990s. Because of the specific nature and sequence of both works, they are being combined here for the first time as two resonating entities. The dust jacket brings this combination of numbers and letters into contact with another, related element of Zobernig’s oeuvre, the CMYK scheme for colour printing. At every turn, we seem to be looking at a manual of basic knowledge.
