»Theory« is an artists’ book referring to Kenneth Goldsmith’s book with the same title, published by Jean Boîte Éditions. It can be read as a »Readymade look alike« and was developed during the »Book on Books« workshop at ACUD, Berlin.

»The title ›Theory‹ and the quote ›Exactly wrong‹ derives from the artists' book ›Theory‹ by Kenneth Goldsmith. ›Have and take or give and get‹ is a quote by Lawrence Weiner from the book ›The society Architect Ponders the Golden Gate Bridge – oder: wie sie kriegen, was sie nicht verdienen‹, documenting the same title opera he did together with Peter Gordon.«
