O. Niemeyer, Erik van der Weijde, published by Rollo Press and 4478 Zine.

Rollo-Press and 4478ZINE have joined forces again and present ‘O. Niemeyer’, the latest artist book by Erik van der Weijde.
This time Van der Weijde travelled to cities like Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Milan, Berlin and many others to photograph the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer. Once more, the obsession with his subject, has led the artist to produce an archive presented in a book that follows the same design and size as This is not my Wife, only now in an oblong format.

LABYRINTH – Ein Buch in vier Vorträgen, Olaf Nicolai & Jan Wenzel, Spector Books & Rollo Press

“Warum tötete Theseus den Minotaurus?” – “Weshalb fand er den Ausgang des Labyrinths nur mit Hilfe des Ariadnefadens?” – “Erleichtert ein Mehr an Wissen die Orientierung? Oder wird es schwieriger, wenn wir verstanden haben, wie leicht es ist, sich zu verlaufen?” – “Wie kommt es, dass das Labyrinth uns im Handumdrehen zu Mitspielern macht? Warum kommen wir nicht los von diesem Gewirr aus Linien und Gängen?” – “Ist der Weg ins Zentrums des verwickelten Gängereichs leichter zu finden als der Weg zurück in die Freiheit?”

320 Seiten, Deutsch, Broschur mit ca. 280 Abbildungen

Hektor Works.

Invented together with engineer Uli Franke, Hektor made its debut as Jürg Lehni’s diploma project at the Ecole Cantonale d’Art De Lausanne (ECAL) in 2002, performing regularly since until 2009. Often created in collaboration with others, the works are explorations of the limitations and expression of this delicate yet wilful output device.
