Catalogue for solo exhibition by Tony Conrad – an installation for Kunsthalle Wien’s glass exhibition pavilion that relates to his ongoing interest in the structures of power and addresses ideas such as isolation, surveillance, and social and visual transparency. One of the central elements is a prison cell which functions both as a sculptural object and a projection surface for film. This installation is a replica of a jail cell that was used as the setting for a six-hour 16mm film, which Conrad made in the 1980s, and which featured the artists Tony Oursler and Mike Kelley, amongst others. The book features text by Garth Long and an interview with Conrad by Diedrich Diederichsen.
