The background of the project is Franz Kafka’s short story A Hunger Artist which tells about a starving artist who keeps his practice with the same (or maybe more) passion even after the public’s interest diverges to different and new forms of a museum. Hunger & ‘A Hunger Artist’ is the final compilation of all Hunger collection in a silkscreened box set. It includes all the 7 Hunger issues, included the long sold-out ‘Hunger 1’ + a silkscreen poster by Michael Ackerman’s ‘Hunger – Epilogue’.

About the Publisher
Void is an independent publishing house dedicated to photography books and education. The project is driven by its founders Myrto Steirou and João Linneu. You might bump into Myrto, Void’s editor, at a book fair or festival in a far flung part of the globe, but you’ll usually find her in Greece, at their store in Athens. João, Void’s designer, is based in Reykjavík… it’s entirely possible that you may not meet him (in person at least). Void works with both established and up-and-coming artists, proudly fostering photographers’ debut books.

Void has collaborated with many international art institutions since we started, back in October 2016. In 2021 Void became one of Futures Photography’s members. Void is devoted to and passionate about the projects they undertake. In their books, you will find powerful stories and innovative design, melded together with fine and experimental material.
