Suitcase Body Is Missing Woman (Book Works, London)


Synopsis: Eva Weinmayr presents a collection of newsstand posters – capitalized handwritten legends that condense complex realities into three or four-line news splashes. Charged with meaning these headlines give no information; rather they are teasers with no context, telling more about what could happen than what really has happened. Weinmayr has arranged these legends in alphabetical sequence which isolated from the context of the newsstand now operate both as a narrative and poetry.
