1. Edition, BNKR 2017
Concept Publication: Ludwig Engel, Joanna Kamm and Quentin Walesch
Research / Material: Ludwig Engel and Joanna Kamm
Design / Production: Quentin Walesch

First edition of the program’s publication series, which will be followed by further editions over the course of the year. It does not only document realized projects at BNKR but features the Mandala/Mandela-Effect: “Mandela-Effect” refers to collectively false memories of historical facts while the “Mandala-Effect” refers to the false remembering of the Mandela-Effect. This way, ideas, which would make absolute sense in the context of the program but could not be realized, will be inscribed into the collective memory of Stop making sense, it‘s as good as its gets.

Orientteppiche

Replica Books is a publishing house founded by the architectural office Something Fantastic. Replica Books publishes out-of-print books that should still be available to the public in a simple and affordable way.

The first book to be published in the series, “Orientteppiche”, is a constant reference at Something Fantastic because of the graphic design of  the carpet depictions. The way they are cut and positioned on the page holds a beauty telling of the designer’s  − or editor’s − ambition to show each carpet the way it seemed best to her or him, with disregard to graphical conventions.
