A complex and richly illustrated artist's book about sculpture, eternal ice, and the taxidermied shell of Lenin. Circumscribed in a linguistically fine manner, it is a fictional work of art filled with irony and political dynamite. Adi Hoesle develops a linguistic monumental work by imaginatively reappraising political realities – a new mausoleum for rewriting history via an artistically staged and accomplished cleansing that harnesses the power of art.
