"Kunst ist zu einem Ort für politische Flüchtlinge geworden, sie bietet uns Überlebensmöglichkeiten." Claire Fontaine 2012 - Diese Monographie dokumentiert und bewertet erstmals das Werk des 2004 in Paris gegründeten Künstlerkollektivs.
In this publication Claire Fontaine show both old and new works that deal with economic structures as a closed and irrational system that is intent on defending the status quo using any necessary means and at any price. The artist collective Claire Fontaine was formed in Paris in 2004. The name is taken from a well-known French manufacturer of school notebooks and writing paper. Claire Fontaine describe themselves as "ready-made-artists" who work with existing forms and materials. They analyse the crisis of individuality in contemporary art using video, installation, sculpture and text, denouncing the passivity of politics in the process.
