Veli & Amos: This is not a Commercial. Billboard/Billding

52,00 €

Warning: Last items in stock!

Artist's book documenting the practice of the Veli & Amos duo, who paint and install billboards in Zurich for a fee (the book itself is designed as advertising space for rent).

On Zurich’s Langstrasse everyone has to do their thing, make money—and we had to earn our daily bread too. “You pay the bill, we paint the board”: Billboard. We painted ads of all kinds—for a fee. We placed a commercial Billboard (2011–2015) on the roof deck of Esther Eppstein’s message salon, a former artist’s space. What used to be the Perla-Mode building now houses a chain restaurant for vegetarians. It took a while for the concept to catch on: people were skeptical. But then business picked up, and we—and others—painted everything from love letters and breakup notes, political statements, gossip and rumors to graffiti and street art and even tobacco ads. Business was good, so we expanded. The sculpture became a “billding”. Living off—and behind—a billboard.

This is not a commercial addresses questions of economic models and strategies for artists to survive in today’s neoliberal market structure. As painters, we procured work for ourselves through this participatory sculpture. We don’t paint BMWs in Veli & Amos style: the brand is part and parcel of our sculpture, our postcards, our paintings and now our book. The point of the book is not only to document our billboard project, but also to keep it as up-to date as possible—with ads.
