Wripped Scripped

Wripped Scripped, the latest book by Slavs and Tatars, offers a journey into the sound world of nasals and voiceless gutturals, supplemented this time by an analysis of the consonant dʒ (the German tetragraph dsch). This is a pretext to take a deeper look into German Orientalism and its political alliances with the Muslim world. The brilliant text is extensively illustrated with the works of Slavs and Tatars and intriguing archival items.


Released by the renowned publishing house Hatje Cantz, the book accompanies a series of exhibitions by the collective at German public institutions. It is also available at the Raster bookstore for EUR 30. The book is bilingual German/English.
