War Primer 2
E-book optimised for iPad
War Primer 2 originated as a book published by MACK in 2011 and sold out immediately. It is a sequel to Bertolt Brecht’s War Primer (1955), which was concerned with images of the Second World War, whereas War Primer 2 updates Brecht’s piece with images of conflict generated by both sides of the so-called “War on Terror”.
War Primer 2 was produced in the artists’ studio in a limited edition of 100 copies, applying silkscreen and offset printed images to 100 copies of a 1998 edition (Libris, London) of Bertolt Brecht’s 1955 War Primer. This digital version combines critical and academic essays about War Primer with a screen based rendition of the artist’s book.
