Abstract (English)

This catalogue features scripts and stills from eight videos by Kramer, as well as documentation of various installations. Both Stebbins and Viveros-Fauné, suggest the artist's work provides a critique of consumer culture. They also comment on the “loser” persona that Kramer perpetuates in his work – a persona that often reassembles the pathetic cast-offs of consumerism. Biographical notes.
