“With the precision of a skull drill, Der Trepanomikönen cracks open the fragile borders we erect between our bodies and their alien extensions. These are horror’s celebrity chefs.”
— Kate Marshall, author of Corridor: Media Architectures in American Fiction
This elaborately illustrated artist’s book is a funny, sarcastic inquiry into something like the idea of “democratic bio- materialism:” bodies implicated in networks of language, politics, consumption (eating), and exchange. Der Trepanomikönen is “the guidebook for tomorrow’s ultratellurian bureau- hegemony and all of its associated eating noises.”
