Endnote, tooth
Ian Kiaer
Published by Archive Books, Berlin, 2020, 320 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 25 × 30 cm, English
Price: €38

Ian Kiaer’s monograph is based on a project that the artist began several years ago and whose configuration changes with the circumstances. Drawing on the notion of marginal endnotes in books, it references the utopian concepts of the Austrian American architect Frederick Kiesler (1890–1965).

In the late 1940s, Kiesler—an atypical figure whose writings were a significant influence on postwar art, architecture and design—came up with the (unrealised) Tooth House, a residence modelled on the human tooth and integrated into its environment.

Published as part of the the eponymous exhibition at Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2017.
