"TEN YEARS OF SABOTAGE"
>TAKE IT LIKE A FAN<
SABOTAGE-COMMUNICATIONS: 1992-2002

This year, Sabotage Communications, the ultra-mobile Viennese music label founded by artist Robert Jelinek in 1992, is celebrating its ten-year anniversary. To commemorate this occasion, Robert Jelinek and Sabotage designer Christoph Steinegger are publishing two books that for the first time extensively document all of the internationally-active labelīs activities and affiliated projects, illustrated on more than 200 pages each.

The first book, "DAS MEDIEN MYSTERIEN THEATER" ("The Media Mystery Theater", borrowed from Hermann Nitschīs work and press book "Das Orgien Mysterien Theater") documents for the first time the international media activities of the art label, focusing primarily on medial perception and presentation, as well as on art pranks, guerilla media, and fake campaigns. The range of the second book, "SABOTAGE: TORMENTS & VICES," covers record releases of the last six years and the record-asphalting job of 1999, scent projects such as "CaSH Perfume - The Scent of Money" (1998) and "EU de Toillete" (2001), the seventy public acts of Sabotage (1992-95), as well as the loudest car in Europe - THE BEAST (2001), the current "70,000 Cannabis Plants for Kassel" project for the Documenta XI (2002) and other associated handicaps. "DAS MEDIEN MYSTERIEN THEATER" (Edition Selene, Vienna) and "SABOTAGE: TORMENTS & VICES" (Gestalten Verlag, Berlin) will appear simultaneously in September 2002.
On September 7, 2002, a world tour of the same name will begin, where both books will be presented to the greater public, accompanied by Sabotage music events in clubs, visuals, and showcases in design museums.
