Joy Division fans, pop culture fanatics, and wannabe hipsters, take note. Forty years after the release of ‘Unknown Pleasures’, the band’s debut studio album, design studio Vieceli & Cremers presents ‘Division of Pleasures’. The album’s cover artwork was designed by artist Peter Saville, using a data plot of signals from a radio pulsar. Taking this image as its theme – one which has since triggered countless interpretations and reprocessings as a globally recognised pop cultural trope – the book features 136 pages of recreations, installations, modifications, transformations, pre-digital memes, repetitions and differences, and differences in repetition. With an essay by Jörg Scheller.
