Intervention by the artist: Jordan Strafer developed a movie poster for her work on display. It is the basis for the custom-made dust cover for this book and a limited edition of 500 posters to be sold and placed throughout the city at the time of the exhibition.
The New York–based artist Jordan Strafer’s primary medium is video. Her part-autobiographical, part-fictional work reflects the complex nature of racial identity, gender, sexuality, class, and ‘Americanism.’ A key aspect of her practice is the thoughtful yet playful choreography of seemingly antagonistic emotions.
The publication accompanying Strafer’s exhibition LOOPHOLE at the Secession offers insight into her eponymous new film and her creative process. It contains essays by Constance Debré and Kerstin Stakemeier and an interview by Aram Moshayedi with Strafer herself. Strafer developed an artistic intervention for the book in the form of a movie poster based on her work on display. As an artistic intervention for the book, Strafer developed a movie poster based on her work on display. The result is a custom-made dust cover for this book and a limited edition of 500 posters.
