KUB Arena – KAYA

The present book – the fourth and last volume in the series of KUB Arena publications – goes far beyond a documentation of KAMP KAYA’s activities. Rather it is the very first comprehensive publication on KAYA, a joint project initiated by the painter Kerstin Brätsch and the sculptor Debo Eilers in 2010, in collaboration with the then 13-year-old Kaya Serene. In addition to a comprehensive and carefully compiled catalogue raisonné, the publication documents all of KAYA’s past exhibitions and includes seminal essays by Boško Blagojević, Scott Roben, and Kerstin Stakemeier – who have all been following KAYA’s work for many years – as well as a conversation with Burmamyanmar aka Daniel Chew. Altogether the publication provides profound insights into this important and exceptional artistic collaboration. In a similar manner to the volumes that have been published to date (»On Performance«, »Anfang Gut. Alles Gut. Actualizations of the futurist opera Victory Over the Sun (1913)«, and »Art and Ideology Critique After 1989«), this last volume in the series could also potentially become one of the key references on the topic.
