Product Description

Good Life was awarded with the German Photo Book Prize 21/22 in silver.

Good Life is a hybrid between photo book and artist catalog that summarizes the work from 2017 to 2021 of artist Meike Männel (b. 1991 in Nuremberg, Germany). It's the first book Männel published after her graduation from Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, and goes hand in hand with her exhibition at Kunsthaus Nürnberg in Nuremberg.

Meike Männel works mainly on different ongoing series, a selection of which is presented in the first part of the book. The book includes two essays about Männel work by art historian Dr. Teresa Bischoff (former professor of Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg) and writer Anna Hofmann (masters study at Deutsches Literaturinstitut Leipzig). In the book, the artist more experimental and ephemeral photo silkscreens and photo installations are shown. The shown motifs deal with the longing for distance, the uncertainty and the question of survival. In loud and softer colors it presents a world that often lies unnoticed in front of us and whose aesthetics one takes for granted, without recognizing it.
