PLACEBO&SURROGATES evoke artificial worlds and seem to hold out the promise of paradise on earth. Two works from this series are represented in this full colur publication. Coffee mugs with pictures or texts are seen in 150 individual colour reproductions, as well as colourful Frisbees floating through the skies with EXERCISES printed on them: therapeutic prescriptions for improving our lives or, as the title tells us, ART FOR A BETTER LIFE.
