Vorschlag für eine zukünftige Ausgabe

The work Vorschlag für eine zukünftige Ausgabe (Suggestion for a Future Edition) consists of a series of nine book dummies a selection of the works that Margarete Steffin co-authored with Bertolt Brecht, with the names of both authors printed on the front. In previous editions, Margarete Steffin is only mentioned as a collaborator inside the books. Each of the nine, extremely well-known works is produced in the adapted graphic cover style of Suhrkamp Verlag designer Willi Fleckhaus. During the former Federal Republic, the broad reception of Brecht often neglected Marxist ideas and collective modes of production underlying his works.
