Divided into three series, the extensive collection of Daniela Keizer’s photographs taken in the winter of 2008/09 in Cairo are combined in this illustrated book. Observed from the inside of a building on the Champollion Road, a picture of the adjacent area unfolds in 296 photographs. Again and again the same buildings, roofs and trees appear in the midday light, at sunset or at night in the reflection of electric lighting. A repetition that sharpens our perception. Slight shifts in perspective, time of day and weather direct the eye to ever new details. The illustrated book is accompanied by a collection of conversations in which, starting with the viewing of the photographs, the focus is on everyday Egyptian life. The acoustic recordings of these observations, Portrayals and narratives provide additional insights into this district. They are accessible as audio sequences online and can be retrieved along with further information on the project website.

Romanian Archeological Photography Index / R.A.P.I.. Bogdan Gîrbovan, Michele Bressan. Galeria Posibilă.

The Romanian Archeological Photography Index was begun three years ago through the exploration, excavation, photographing and recording of objects found in Romania dating from the time of the two world wars. It saw Bogdan Gîrbovan and Michele Bressan set out in the footsteps of the “magnets” – the locals who search for objects dating from the two world wars in order to sell them as scrap.
The project takes place on three levels. First, there is the presentation of the landscape, which is taken to be their working perimeter. Then, the objects are located, dug up and photographed in situ. These are then removed from the environment in which they were found, i.e. they are decontextualized, and photographed in a controlled environment. Through this latter, objective representation of form, they acquire a clear abstract quality that is suggestive of other forms of interpretation. Together, the three layers comprise a series of archaeological episodes in which photography is used as a means of documentation and a tool of study.

A hybrid object, at the crossroads between history book, photography book and family photo album, this is R.A.P.I. in published form. The final product will contain a wide variety of information and texts intended to create a mapping between the published object, the reader, the authors and the wider context of memory. The design and layout is the work of Matei Câlția.

5 booklets, various formats.

In Borrowed Territories, Lucian Bran goes to the sites where Hatfield & McCoys was shot, a TV series about two confronting families right after the Civil War, in the second half of the XIXth century. He doesn’t travel to Kentucky, nor West Virginia, but to Brașov, Argeș and Ilfov – because this is where the film shootings took place, borrowing the natural scapes to a history which happened thousands of miles away. Bran brings together in his project images from the movie set and film stills, which alternate with his own photographs taken in the same places which were used as backdrop for the movie.
With contributions by Magda Radu, Augustina Stanciu, Monica Stroe, Bogdan Iancu.

În Borrowed Territories (Teritorii împrumutate), Lucian Bran merge în locurile unde s-a turnat filmul Hatfield & McCoys, despre confruntarea a două familii imediat după Războiul Civil American, în a doua parte a secolului XIX. Nu merge-n Kentucky sau în West Virginia, ci în Brașov, Argeș și Ilfov – fiindcă aici au avut loc filmările, împrumutând cadrul natural unei istorii petrecute la mii de kilometri distanță. Bran adună în proiectul lui imagini de pe platourile de filmare și cadre din film, pe care le alternează cu fotografii făcute de el în locurile care apar ca fundal natural în pelicula americană.

Texte de Magda Radu, Augustina Stanciu, Monica Stroe și Bogdan Iancu.

Showboat: Punk/Sex/Bodies explores sex in punk and punk in sex. Punk is often thought of as an almost asexual movement, in part because of its charged aversion to romance (see Johnny Rotten’s notorious description of love as “2 minutes and 52 seconds of squelching noises”). Yet, its raw street sound triggered an exuberant, primal physical release among its youthful followers.

For many punks, sex was used as a necessary shock tactic against the orthodoxies that held sway in conservative 1970s Britain. The status of punk as a radical subculture meant that it could freely explore sex without mainstream censorship; and this ability to openly express sex and sexuality provided punk with so much of its essential rawness and immediacy.

Beginning in 1972 and spanning right up to the present day, Showboat provides a chronological survey of the relationship between punk and sex as seen through original posters, flyers, record covers, photographs and ephemera drawn from the editor’s punk archive, The Mott Collection. Alongside written contributions from Julie Burchill, Paul Cook, Vivien Goldman, Eve Libertine, Bruce LaBruce, Amos Poe, Richard Prince and Will Self among many others. Designed by Jamie Andrew Reid.

One of the most influential photographers of our time, Nobuyoshi Araki is known for his diaristic style or “shi-shashin” (I-photographs) through the publication of over 500 books throughout his career. His work has become practically synonymous with Japanese photography; closely associated with his work on bondage, his late wife, Yoko, as well as still lifes and nudes.

In 1986 at Cinema Rise in Tokyo, Araki staged a live performance entitled Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story). Using two projectors, Araki and his assistants, Nobuhiko Tokyo Monogatari became the first in a series of live performances entitled Arakinema, which he staged until the mid-2000s in The majority of the work is derived from Shashin Jidai, the important underground sub culture magazine of the 1980s museums and art institutions around the world. in Japan.

As a special case excited about our film work. As Araki also explained at our initial meeting in Shinjuku last year, “The two films should be seen as a set, since Blue Period is about the past and This project is just (a future). It is an act of subtraction (past), whereas adding color to the images in the images in Last Summer is about an act of addition (future). like life itself. ”

Working directly from the 140 original slides used for both projections, the book successfully offers a fresh review of the photographer’s hidden oeuvre and regains the true spirit and atmosphere of the original Arakinema performances
