Tova Mozard has always been interested in how people act and the games that they play in group settings. When visiting Los Angeles for the first time, finding these kinds of improvisations right there in front of her, she realised that she’d found her subject matter. Cops, psychics, and comedians might seem to be well known and understood as archetypes, but Tova Mozard wants to go deeper: to find uncharted territories within these categories of work and being. The distance from her own culture gave her a different perspective, allowing her to get inside the seemingly familiar and discover its workings.
The book features an essay by artist Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff and a conversation between Tova Mozard and artist and filmmaker Chris Kraus.
