on distance is a volume of photographs by Heinz Peter Knes representing a small selection from his extensive archive of travel photography dating back to 2010. Unlike a conventional approach to a personal travel log, indexing places and situations, ordered according to chronologies or geographies, the photos and their ordering reflect upon broader cultural themes driven by personal interests, desires, and chance. Knes, in conversation with Julie Ault, ordered the images according to subjective and associative categories influenced by Warburg’s “law of the good neighbor”, Warburg’s principal of library organization based on the exchange and mutual engagement between books placed next to each other, rather than classical groupings that branch off from general categories such as “fine art” or “photography.” on distance opens up a similar research into the possible languages that emerge within images when they are allowed to be read without restraints of preconceived modes of categorizing knowledge and experience.

The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition: mothertongue by Danh Vo, The Danish Pavilion, 56th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, May 9 – November 22, 2015. The publication is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.

Obsolete things and images, left to their own devices, which I shift out of their context of silent invisibility and uselessness. In a certain sense I am caring for them. The practice of montage opens up unexpected associative, existential and aesthetic possibilities. For years I have been thinking about the often slumbering or exhausted potential that resides in images, going back to observe and utilize anachronistic or humble materials in project that are different, each time, that bring to light or reveal the hidden, irrational side of things and images. To gather, approach, put together, to make meet, is a way of reorganizing or surprising vision and thought, of calling back into play the enigmatic nature of the photographic image that continuously questions us.

Iran 1970. Gabriele Basilico. Humboldt Books

In the summer of 1970, Gabriele Basilico set off from Milan in a Fiat 124, nominally heading for Kabul. The journey towards India was a rite of passage for the flower children generation, and Basilico had plans to take a series of photos to then sell on to some magazine. The journey didn’t quite turn out as planned, but in his personal archive, those shots were carefully stored away, and on more than one occasion, the Milanese photographer thought about turning them into a book. As Luca Doninelli writes in the introduction, this is “Basilico pre-Basilico”, a reportage stretching from Yugoslavia through to Turkey and Iran – which turned out to be the final destination of the trip – in which we may note the inklings of his vocation-to-be. The afterword by Giovanna Calvenzi, Gabriele’s travelling companion on that journey, tells the story of that adventure in an era of unprecedented freedom.

Gabriele Basilico (Milan, 1944-2013) is considered one of the masters of contemporary photography. After graduating in architecture in 1973, he devoted his life to photography. The transformations of the contemporary landscape, the form and identity of the city and the metropolis all served as Gabriele Basilico’s privileged fields of research. “Milano ritratti di fabbriche” (1978-80) was the first of his works to focus on outlying industrial areas. In 1984-85 he took part in the Mission Photographique de la DATAR, the project set up by the French government and entrusted to a group of international photographers with the aim of representing the transformation of the national countryside. In 1991 he took part in a mission to Beirut, a city devastated by fifteen years of civil war. Basilico was awarded numerous prizes, and his works are to be found in prestigious public and private collections, both in Italy and around the world. During his career, he published over sixty books of his own works.

There are certain images that provoke us. Take, for example, the photograph of Jane Birkin, in which she stands leaning casually against a door with a cigarette in one hand and the other in her trousers – a detail that you don’t see at first glance. A groundbreaking image that was seen in the 1970s as an act of female self-emancipation. Grit Hachmeister copied the pose in 2007 and its effect is just as startling as the original. The artist has a series of such pictures in her oeuvre: people dressed in nothing but a pair of shoes engaged in various sexual practices. There’s plenty of fumbling around and coupling here – being human is a messy business. Hachmeister now presents her first monograph, a collection of drawings, self-portraits, visual narratives, and staged photographs that were produced over the last ten years and provide a showcase for the artist’s humorous, gender-critical work.

Grit Hachmeister (*1979 in Leipzig, Germany), lives and works in Berlin.

Sova #6 “Desire” takes a glimpse at the apparently essential query of the hedonistic generation – our bawdy cravings, our passionate endeavour and the destructiveness of our devouring needs. Various visual and textual reflections by 16 different photographers, writers and other artists including Anastasia Muna, Anna Crews, Archie Fitzgerald, Eylül Aslan, Florian Reimann, Helen Korpak, J Mauricio Orozco, Jasmin Kokkola, Lena Gallovicova, Marina Richter, Massimiliano Perasso, Nicolas Polli, Nicole Weniger, Ren Hang, Rebecca Brodskis and Slavoj Žižek create an encounter of disparate aspects of desire and investigate the nature of our ambiguous aspirations.

The Sova #6 Artist Poster by Atelier Disko with a quote from Slavoj Žižek. Comes with every freshly printed copy.
