A series of portraits of teen idols of the 80’s and early 90’s in Silvia Prada’s classic monochromatic nostalgia-meets pop art manifestos. Prada playfully chronicles cultural iconography with the ardent reverence of a teen fan mixed with the obsession to detail of an anthropologist and the refined hand of an expressive illustrator. Generation X’s celebration of this golden age is a fantastical glimpse into our past and an early grappling with stardom and popular culture long before the digital era.

This publication is the fourth in a series of artist books dedicated to b/w portraits.

Clearly indebted to Andy Warhol’s ironic identity play in his photobooth self portraits, these photographs were shot for the series The Exquisite Self Portraits, 2010, in which Rob Pruitt collaged onto large canvases three or four horizontal bands featuring photo fragments of his head and chest.

This publication is the fifth in a series of artist books dedicated to b/w portraits.

 Lessons in Posing Subjects. Robert Heinecken. WIELS. Triangles Books.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, this book presents the series Lessons in Posing Subjects which Robert Heinecken created in 1981-1982 and reproduced here in its entirety for the first time.
Playing with the reality effect inherent to instant photographs, Heinecken re-contextualizes in this series images found in mail order catalogues, which he juxtaposes with ironic texts.
At once seductive and full of humour, his ‘lessons’ are no less provocative, bearing witness to the commitment of this controversial artist, who considered his approach a form of ‘guerrilla’ artistic practice.
