Retail Apocalypse

edited by Fredi Fischli, Niels Olsen, Adam Jasper

Shopping is history, in both senses of the word. As shopping shifts online and the economic shocks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic push bankruptcies to ­unprecedented levels, retail is facing its own version of the end of days. Retail Apocalypse presents a compendium of case studies, interventions, and object lessons rescued from the bonfire of retail culture. It ranges from Friedrich Kiesler’s display windows to Gae Aulenti’s Fiat show­rooms, from J. G. Ballard’s dystopian fantasies to TELFAR’s critical utopias, from Rem Koolhaas to Herzog & de Meuron.

Samson Young at Borås Art Biennial, Sweden

The installation series entitled Possible Music (2018) is an ongoing work developed in collaboration with NESS who have developed a pioneering code-driven software that generates sound with virtual instruments, making it possible for Young to compose music for instruments that cannot exist in reality.

Possible Music #2 (2019) is a 16-channel sound installation of short compositions performed by virtual instruments that make reference to military “signal calls”—short tunes (typically performed on the trum­pet) that announce changes in daily routines in a mili­tary camp or on a battlefield—with titles like Attention Call, Fatigue Call, Assembly Call, Fantasy Call #1, and Sick Call.
