Celluloid Pathways Into the Land of Dreams. Björn Engberg. Moon Space Books.

Posted in books, photography on December 28th, 2013


Celluloid Pathways Into the Land of Dreams. Björn Engberg. Moon Space Books.

A photographic novel by Björn Engberg about a trip across the Atlantic, through North America and into the subconscious.

Run far away, from the thrill
Over the hill, leave the chill
Coyotes roar “Hello-hello!”
And all you see is mellow-yellow
You find the sand, find the sun
Find the cave, where it begun

Here the poison tastes so good
With orange drops from the hood
Your mind must turn all so strange
Must get lost, out of range
Magic tricks can’t save you now
It all twirls up, you hear Ka-pow!

The Personal Effects of Kim Dotcom. Simon Denny. Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König

Simon Denny, who was awarded the Baloise Art Prize at Art Basel Statements in 2012, is interested in the development and contradictions of our thoroughly mediatized society. His installations, objects, and projects focus on the connections between changes in media, commerce, aesthetics, and politics-with their ever repeated and always rapidly obsolete promise of the new.

Phenotype. Jochen Lempert. Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König

Since the early 1990s, the German photographer and biologist Jochen Lempert (born 1958) has used analogue, black-and-white photography to convey his gently reverential vision of nature and sentience–whether that of animals, plants or humans. Often grainy, sometimes verging on abstraction, and sometimes focusing minutely on the activity of some tiny creature, his photographs exude a simple pleasure in fleeting tranquility. Lempert has also taken a quietly particular stance on the presentation of his work: in exhibitions, his images are presented unframed and tacked up on walls, and his books (among them Recent Field Work and Coevolution) are always immediately identifiable for their modest but exquisite design, printing and paper. Continuing this tradition of gorgeous bookmaking, Jochen Lembert: Phenotype reproduces 450 of his works, most of them arranged in groups and sequences, from more than 20 years of artistic production.
