All I Remember. Elisabetta Benassi.

Conceived as an artist’s book as well as a work of art, All I remember, is a collection of 477
backs of photos retrieved from the archives of the most important daily newspapers in the
world, collected and photographed by the artist over the last three years. Elisabetta Benassi
has selected the most significant photos of the 20th century in a backwards route through
personal and collective memories. Each page of the book corresponds to a single photo back
characterized by a data sheet with the dates, the photographers’ names and an objective
description of that which is represented in the image, as is usually done in image filing
systems. The result is an original history of our past, made of written images, of memorable
moments of the history of the 20th century.

Uncanny Magazine #3: Publication As Process. Uncanny Editions.

The aim of this issue is to document and archive an essentially visual account of ‘publication as process’. The idea of making several publications during the illustration/ design process is a way of creating a platform for critical awareness. Not only does it generate space for discussion with other people, but promotes a big variety of solutions and alternatives to the work being produced, thus increasing the possibility of making a more considered and reflected decision through the act of publishing.

Issue 3 of Uncanny Magazine is divided into two sections:
1) a reproduction of a publication produced as part of the image-making process for an illustration project for the English Touring Opera, in its original size and form;
2) a selection of 11 of the 23 publications produced whilst making illustrations for the aforementioned design project.
