»Theory« is an artists’ book referring to Kenneth Goldsmith’s book with the same title, published by Jean Boîte Éditions. It can be read as a comment to his work and is a »Readymade look alike«. Each publication is completly handmade and was printed with the riso printing technique. It was developed by Franziska Brandt and Moritz Grünke during the »Book on Books« workshop at ACUD Gallery, Berlin.
From the colophon: »The title ›Theory‹ and the quote ›Exactly wrong‹ derives from the artists' book ›Theory‹ by Kenneth Goldsmith. ›Have and take or give and get‹ is a quote by Lawrence Weiner from the book ›The society Architect Ponders the Golden Gate Bridge – oder: wie sie kriegen, was sie nicht verdienen‹, documenting the same title opera he did together with Peter Gordon.«
