The book Weapons of Mass Instruction chronicles the NSK State following the Berlin Citizens’ Congress until its final actions before the pandemic. The book offers a unique perspective on ideas of statehood through the lens of this abstract, totalitarian unit that encompasses art, politics, theory, and practice, consisting of dystopian doubt and utopian idealism. This bilingual book is available in English and German and gives readers a distinctive perspective on possibly the most enduring and influential art project ever created.
