DIREKT MASCHIN Moscow-Graz

A news project by fax
1994



Content of the project is the installation of a news outlet in Moscow for the transmission of news by fax (Pictures/Text) to Graz where those will be published as translated posters. In a three-month news block the working creators of art in Moscow will have the opportunity to fax direct messages of an artistic, political or literary kind to Graz. In a weekly interval the news outlet in Moscow will send the compiled pages to Graz. RIHZOM will also publish those messages in a weekly interval.
Some colporteurs will distribute the multiplied fax posters inside the area of the city of Graz. On poster walls of diverse cultural institutions the faxes will be put up in the succession of their arrival. After the completion of the three months the collected faxes will be published as a newspaper.
