Product Description

John Komurki’s “Wörterbuch” comprises a series of sparse and enigmatic texts. Resembling poetry, they are in fact abstracted from a multilingual dictionary published in Germany in the immediate aftermath of World War II. Excavated in this way from their their original context, these texts become a meditation on the ravages of war, and in particular, its impact on civilian populations; as well as a reflection on the ways in which violence deforms language.
