museum für kunst und gewerbe, hamburg: ball im kopf: kult ums kicken

i got this very great book for xmas.
it’s the book that accompanies an exhibit that is currently shown under the same name at the museum für kunst und gewerbe in hamburg (till 26.2.2006). the exhibit shows football being used in advertisement, art, graphics. the well designed book contains all that and comes with a the dvd for the short films and music videos. most texts are in german. editors: die-gestalten (always a reference for excellent book-design).
some of the work on show is truely brilliant, like the short film it’s all in the game by jeanette ehlers that shows a sequence of a football game where all the players have been touched out of the image, so you only see the ball and the shadows of the players running after it.
or this piece called Stud by Freddy Contreras showing stilettos with studs.
