With a preface by Marius Babias, a text by Hedwig Saxenhuber, and an interview with Raluca Voinea.

In his young international career, Ciprian Mureşan has already created an oeuvre that is spread across various media, including drawing, animation film, video installations, and sculpture. This comprehensive publication offers a survey of his artistic work, including his contributions to the Venice Biennial Auto-da-Fe and Dog Luv (2009), which translate literary models into images, and in so doing achieve a unique interpretation of the present. Mureşan’s very young oeuvre is systematically catalogued and set in relation to overviews of research on post-Communist societies, globalization theory, and their overlaps with aesthetic debates. Extensive illustrations, which also include previously unpublished material, provide a broad insight into the artist’s work.
