The Many Faces of Hans Ulrich Obrist, a recent post on the Artfag blog, introduces Charles Gutte and his work of "carefully rendered drawings documenting the misspelling of the name Hans Ulrich Obrist", resulting in the fantastic work above.
I feel your pain. How many times has my name has been misspelled, often in various twists within the same publication. I was about to make a point concerning the German language and an increased chance for error, until I realized that my name was misspelled in the literature for an exhibition at the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe (ZKM) in Germany!
So, who is Richard Streitmatter-Tran anagrammatically? Now you know.
