Born 1971 in L neburg (Germany), currently living in Hamburg, Mirko Reisser has become known as an artist worldwide especially for his large size graffiti works in the 3D-style, in which he depicts his writer name DAIM in serial repetition and within processes of construction and deconstruction. The book Mirko Reisser (DAIM) 1989 - 2014 is the most extensive publication of the artist's oeuvre so far. The texts contained in the publication are from renowned authors: Johannes Stahl, art critic and curator, takes a look back at the historic roots of graffiti, in whose tradition the works of the artist certainly stand, but from whose liberation they also fight. By also explaining the technique of the artist, he makes it possible to look into the digital components that are involved in the process of realization of the works. Belinda Grace Gardner, known from numerous essays about topics of contemporary art in relevant publications, approaches the work of the artist from an art historical point of view. She examines signature as content and builds bridges to protagonists of conceptual art such as On Kawara with his date paintings and Hanne Darboven, she also draws conclusions about the connection of the works to concrete poetry. Arne Rautenberg, freelance author, artist and cultural journalist, not only discusses the works in his interview with Mirko Reisser, but also completes the text-contributions in this publication by giving an insight into the person that can be found behind them. The foreword of the book is written by Rik Reinking, art collector, dealer and curator, that has been following Reissers career since its beginnings. In his text he illustrates the relationship between collector and artist.
