Publisher Note

The publication “Chewing the Scenery” appears as an independent part of the correspondent exhibition, which is part of the Swiss contribution to the 54th Venice Biennale. Over the duration of the exhibition, the publication will be further developed and published in three revised and expanded editions. In accordance with this processual working method, each edition represents a fragmentary whole and opens up complex perspectives on the outlined thematic field.
The publication contains three extensive contributions by Maria Iorio / Raphaël Cuomo, Uriel Orlow and Eran Schaerf. In addition to these three artistic contributions, the publication brings together texts by Antke Engel, Mathias Danbolt, Patricia Purtschert and Ann Cvetkovich, as well as an introductory text by Andrea Thal and a conversation with Tim Zulauf.

This second edition of the publication is published on the occasion of the events at the Teatro Fondamenta Nuove and contains in addition a text by Rubia Salgado, e-mails received as responses to the text by Particia Purtschert and a second part of the artistic contribution by Uriel Orlow.
In the following, third and last edition, the loosely interlaced contributions of the publication will be expanded by text and image contributions and include material on the exhibition contributions and the events. It will be published after the end of the exhibition.
