ANDREAS TSCHERSICH

Peripher

For photo-based Swiss artist Andreas Tschersich (b. 1971), Peripher refers to an aesthetic and structural moment when places of transit and transition have exceeded classification, standardization and demarcation. To capture this moment, the artist has combined assorted medium-sized negatives to create large urban images without perspectival distortion. The final large-scale prints create a haunting series that explores a peopleless and what looks like abandoned city landscapes but are actually various cities around the world, Charleroi to Detroit, Kawasaki to Liverpool and into New York City. The more than 90 photographic montages presented in the publication capture the artist’s cool minimal urban work to date. The subject matter of this digitally constructed work firmly roots Tschersich in the mid- and late 20th-century photographic tradition of recording man’s relationship to the built environment represented by the banal unpeopled cityscapes of the New Topographics and the architectural folios of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Tschersich lives and works in Berlin.

TSUGARU: POETRY, WRITINGS, PHOTOGRAPHY

Yojiro Ishizaka, Facsimile edition: Yoko Mori (Eds.)

During his short life photographer Ichiro Kojima (1924–1964) released his only photo book: Tsugaru: Poetry, Writings, Photography (1963, Shinchosha). Beautifully reproduced to once again coincide with the staging of Ichiro Kojima’s noted exhibition, To the North, From the North held at Izu Photo Museum 2014, this fascimile of the original artist book is a unique record of the landscapes, climate and customs of the rural Tsugaru region. Kojima spent his career photographing the natural features of the Aomori region and the traditions of its people, which when viewed today, still harbor a soul-stirring power. Text by Yojiro Ishizaka and poems in Tsugaru dialect by Kyozo Takaki flow alongside Ichiro Kojima’s grainy meditative photographs.The slipcase features a woodblock print by Junichiro Sekino, a printmaker also Aomori born, whose career spanned the same period. The book capitalizes on the distinctive qualities of the rotogravure printing of the time, and attempts to faithfully re-create the carefully crafted binding of the original as well.

UNFIXED

Photography and Postcolonial Perspectives in Contemporary Art

Sara Blokland and Asmara Pelupessy (Eds.)

Start with a think-tank approach to the question of how photography in a post-colonial world can “fix” cultural identity. Turn the idea into a multi-platform symposium and exhibition involving a multicultural group of artists of color. The result is this multi-layered exhibition catalogcum- reader that explores the elusive “truth” of photography and its relationship to ethnicity, culture and identity. The book includes essays on cultural identity and photographic representation as well as exhibition documentation with color plates, installation views and graphics. Featured artists include Charif Benhelima and Otobong Nkanga; contributors include Kobena Mercer and Pamela Pattynama.

CAROLA VOGT & PETER BOERBOOM

Adventureland

Artist couple Carola Vogt and Peter Boerboom have perused their extensive archive of nature-based photography to create an eye-opening journey into the contemporary redefinition of the “great outdoors.” In Adventureland, the two visualize the intertwining of current corporate bonding retreats with the classic romanticism of the German forest. By restaging their picturesque deep-woods settings with woodland experience trails and high-ropes courses, they foster a sense of the uncanny while also connecting contemporary leisure culture to its roots in a 19th-century fetishization of nature. Vogt and Boerboom actively exhibit in their native Germany and Austria and have shown internationally at Art in General, New York. With texts by photo historian Gabriele Conrath-Scholl and Daniela Roth.

VRAI OU FAUX?

Véronique Bourgoin

Between 2010 and 2013, artist and photographer Véronique Bourgoin staged a series of sensory disorienting, Surrealist-influenced installations at the Netherlands Fotomuseum that went on to travel to Hamburg, Vienna, Arles and Istanbul. The museum walls were covered with floor-to-ceiling, black and white trompe l’oeil blow-ups of 19th-century interiors—Art Nouveau lounges and Rococo dressing rooms with brocade wallpaper and heavy drapery. Over this impressive display, Bourgoin installed, salon-style, reproductions of artworks and photographs selected from each participating museum’s collection. Like the shock experienced when photography was invented, viewers experience anew the tension between “being there“ and “not being there.” The entire event is brilliantly documented with two publications; a formal Victorian-styled family album and an oversized unbound newspaper. Included is an essay by Ursula Panhans-Bühler and an interview with the artist by Bernard Marcadé.
