The publication Voice Over is the first part of an ongoing project examining staging, theatricality, and performative strategies in contemporary art practices. It includes contributions by the artists Miriam Bäckström, Goldin+Senneby, Saskia Holmkvist, Fia-Stina Sandlund, and by Geist magazine, staging the spheres of invisibility, the voices of corporate culture, the manipulative power of contemporary role play, in addition to a cinematic re-reading of an iconic theatre play, informed by feminist theory. It also includes an essay by curator and writer Anselm Franke—“Afterword on the Theatre of Transgression”—and an introduction by Iaspis' director, Cecilia Widenheim.
