The Video exhibition appeared in Bremen, August 3-September 22, 2002; the Primetime exhibition in Munich at Kunst und neue Medien, September 7-October 27, 2002). This 120-page catalogue contains nearly everything you'll want to know about Melhus and his work. Text in German and English, with an interview ("What appears to be light and entertaining is a Trojan horse"), and a number of playfully-titled essays by Alice Kuzniar, Barbara Nierhoff, Andreas Kreul ("Surrender Dorothy") and others. By rights, Melhus deserves a focused list all his own, since in addition to photography there is his video work and his installations, which incorporate both. He's fascinated with American culture in all its craziness. Fine in folded stiff wraps as issued.
