How much are you willing to pay for this book? € 9, € 28 or € 150?

As a buyer of this book you become part of a process of value and value generation: Do you choose the bargain with the evaluative addition "cheap" on the cover, do you buy the book at the (subsidised) market price, or do you pay the honest price which reflects its socially and ecologically fair production? The unusual and also radical concept follows the interest of the Danish artist group SUPERFLEX in value systems and the shifting of valuations.

The exhibition Sometimes As A Fog, Sometimes As A Tsunami by SUPERFLEX at Kunsthaus Graz is focusing on the instability of global capitalism inherent in the speculative nature of financial markets and instruments. It examines the dissolving factor of capitalist-oriented action on values, social structures and temporalities. The illustrated book places the works on display in a larger discursive context and locates them in SUPERFLEX's artistic practice from the earliest works critical of capitalism to more recent projects that expand notions of collaboration and community beyond the human species.

Barbara Steiner, editor, curator of the exhibition and director of the Kunsthaus until the end of 2021, Jakob Fenger, (SUPERFLEX), Julia Bromirski (Verlag für moderne Kunst) and Martin Grabner (Kunsthaus Graz) will introduce the book and discuss the challenges for the book trade. Production conditions and pricing policies will also be discussed.

A joint tour of the exhibition will open the discussion.
