Abstract (English)

An exhibition catalogue reminiscent of a consumer catalogue presents Wiener's (and his alter ego, E. Tabasco's) look at the commodification of art. Includes the artist's reflections on the growing phenomenon of the museum gift shop, a text by Hirsch which outlines "8 reasons to shop at Art Depot," and a statement by Trillin. Biographical notes.
