“The design for the artist's book SPIRALE was developed to accompany the performance of the same name, performed by Ann Noël and Emmett Williams at the Sprachen der Künste festival at the Akademie der Künste on 4 February 1984. The alphabet with names of artists, Berlin squares, song fragments, streets and restaurants was created through Emmett Williams' and Ann Noël's habit of making alphabet lists to fall asleep at night. The artist couple prepared their word and name lists for the performance independently of each other and then challenged each other on stage. The book was never published. Now, 25 years later, Ann Noël and Argobooks decided to work on it and print it together with designer Santiago da Silva in a Berlin printing house.”

This book contains the alphabetical lists which were at the basis of the performance with the same name which Ann Noël and Emmett Williams presented to the public at Akademie der Künste in Berlin on Feb.4th 1984, with a short afterword by Vanessa Adler printed in German and English on the dust jacket; soft cover in dust jacket with fold-out, 15 x 10 cm, 128 not numbered pages, Berlin 2020
