A not B, Uta Eisenreich

Book with recent photographic work by Uta Eisenreich focussing on the shortcomings of our cognitive tool-kit. A NOT B walks us along the fine line between common sense and uncommon nonsense in a realm reminiscent of pre-school books, assessment tests and optical illusions.

On the Self-Reflexive Page
An essay by Louis Lühti about book pages.

Priè d’insérer (by Louis Lüthi) – The subject of this book is the page, and the pages reproduced in it are taken from works of literature (or, in some cases, art books that derive specifically from literature). I have chosen to present them thematically, resulting in a typology of self-reflexive pages: Black Pages, Blank Pages, Drawing Pages, Photography Pages, Text Pages, Number Pages, and Punctuation Pages. The repetition this entails is somewhat deceptive (for a start, the reader will observe the slight but not insignificant differences between the visual and verbal presentations); in literature, such devises are often used as a counterpoint to what has preceded or what will follow in the narrative. And the same means may evidently be used to different ends. For these reasons, and because the book attempts only to trace an isolated theme through numerous and often otherwise unrelated works, the reader is in all instances referred to the original publications, which are listed in the bibliography.

Superquadra by Erik van der Weijde
Book with over 160 photographs by Erik van der Weijde of large residential blocks in Brasilia, named Superquadras. Each block, as repeating element in Lucio Costa’s master plan for Brazil’s new capital, was built within a distinct configuration, with an average of eleven residential buildings raised on pilotis, with a height limit of six floors. Besides 30 of these residential blocks in Brasilia, Van der Weijde also visited a residential complex in Rio de Janeiro, designed by Costa in 1948, which is considered to be forerunner of the Superquadras. Brasilia was inaugurated 50 years ago, on April 21, 1960.
