The aim of this book is to properly lend focus and a visual base to the series of Volksboutique projects Christine Hill has made over the past 10 years, including Pilot, Products, Vendible, Tourguide, The Reference Library and the Handbag. She has come to refer to these as "Organizational Ventures", a term which gives shape to the real art-making tools in use: coordination, organization, presentation. The book displays the cumulative nature of Hill's projects and collects a number of texts and reference images that are vital to the work. The structure of the book traces Christine Hill's offices in Binghamton, Baltimore, Berlin and New York. The design reflects properties that have been present in many Volksboutique projects. The book serves as an archive of projects, and a visual hope chest that contains them. The artist: Christine Hill was born in 1968 in Binghamton, N.Y. After her studies at the Maryland Institute, College of Art (1987-1991) in Baltimore she moved to Berlin where Volksboutique was founded (1995). In 1997 Christine Hill participated in documenta X, where she opened the Volksboutique Franchise. In October 1997 Hill relocated to Brooklyn NY. where the Volksboutique Home Office is now housed. Hill lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
