This artist book is being published in occasion of Philipp Gufler’s exhibition “I wanna give you devotion” at Platform Munich in Sept 2017. Gufler realized the exhibition in cooperation with the self-organized archive “forum homosexualität münchen e.V.” The key element is the poster collection of the forum. The show combines historical posters/flyers and works by 29 artists and collectives, who Gufler specifically invited in order to question, actualize and expand on the poster collection. A selection of this historical and current material is collected within the artist book and is extended through text contributions by Kerstin Stakemeier/Philipp Gufler and members of the forum. It’s been published by the Hammann Von Mier Verlag in the forum-series „Splitter“, which discusses historical and sociocultural issues and presents historical figures.
