Between 1968 and 1974, internationally recognized German artist Timm Rautert created experimental photo-based works that challenged the long-valued foundation of photography. He called the works “Image-Analytical Photography.” Related to the ideas and theories emerging from the vibrant conceptual art movement of the time, Rautert’s works focus on the conditions surrounding his creative process, questions of authorship and the role of the viewer. Accompanying the solo exhibition at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (2016), the complete work is documented in book form for the first time. The simple, well-designed publication features all 56 black-and-white and color works along with sketches and notes from Rautert’s early journals while he was a student in Essen, Germany. Diverse and rich essays by Stephanie Buck, Linda Conze and Rebecca Wilton provide an excellent portrait of the time, the artist, and the ideas behind this pivotal and influential body of work.
