Alex Morrison

Giving the Story a Treatment


Giving the Story a Treatment is the first comprehensive publication on Canadian artist Alex Morrison. In his documentations of youth lifestyles, particularly the culture of skaters, Alex Morrison questions to what extent sub-cultural expressions can be considered authentic, especially in the face of strategies of staging and their commercialization by the media.

Texts by Canadian writer Jeff Derksen and Danish art critic Lars Bang Larsen contribute penetrating perspectives into Morrison’s work, linking it in a historical continuum with activist moments of recent history and contemporary events.

Texts in both English and German.
