Provoke : between protest and performance : photography in Japan 1960-1975 by Art Institute of Chicago( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short-lived Japanese magazine Provoke is recognized as a major achievement in world photography of the postwar era, uniting the country's most contentious examples of protest photography, vanguard fine art, and critical theory of the late 1960s and early 70s in only three issues overall. Provoke is accordingly treated here as a model synthesis of the complexities and overlapping uses of photography in postwar Japan. The writing and images by Provoke's members -- critic Koji Taki, poet Takahiko Okada, photographers Takuma Nakahira, Yutaka Takanashi, Daido Moriyama -- were suffused with the tactics developed in some Japanese protest books which made use of innovative graphic design and provocatively "poor" materials. Recording live actions, photography in these years was also an expressive form suited to emphasize and critique the mythologies of modern life with a wide spectrum of performing artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Koji Enokura and Jiro Takamatsu. This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition ever to be held about the magazine and its creators and focuses on its historical context. It covers the preliminary period leading to its first and the aftermath following its last issue. Provoke takes shape as a strongly interpretative explanation of currents in Japanese art and society at a moment of historical collapse and renewal
Lee Miller by Lee Miller( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller (1907-1977) began her artistic career in 1929 as a Surrealist photographer in Paris. She produced images, often in collaboration with Man Ray, in which she alienated motifs by means of tight framing and experimental techniques, and in doing so rendering visible a paradoxical reality. The publication provides renewed access to her best works, including early Surrealist compositions as well as travel photos
The body as protest = Körper als Protest( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blow-up : Antonioni's classic film and photography by Michelangelo Antonioni( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1966 cult film Blow-Up is not only the widely recognized, first English-language film from Michelangelo Antonioni, but can also be regarded as an excursion in photography. On a futile search for evidence of a crime he thinks he has seen, fashion photographer Thomas enlarges his pictures, pushing the envelope of the medium's boundaries. Antonioni's film, a milestone in film history, revolves around the issue of how much truth exists in perception and delves into the ways in which media reproductions can be manipulated. This publication examines "Blow-Up" from a photographic perspective, investigating in detail the photographic and art-historical stances presented in the film, as well as the genres it represents. The stylistic devices discussed range from social reportage, fashion photography and Pop art to abstract photography. In addition to film stills, works that can be seen in "Blow-Up" and photographs that illuminate the cultural context of the film, the famous, ambivalently incriminating photos are also included here. This volume demonstrates that Blow-Up has retained its relevance into the present day as a study of images and their multitudes of interpretations
Lewis Baltz by Lewis Baltz( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lewis Baltz did not only revive the American landscape photography, but also revolutionized the photographic pictorial language of the 1970s. Pictures of industrial landscapes, dreary suburban neighborhoods and wastelands depict radically new motifs, which for the first time were publicly presented in the renown exhibition 'New Topographics' in 1975. This catalogue was made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz and approaches his work through various angles. The texts highlight how Baltz's photographies relate to the art of the 1970s, how he applies filmic strategies and why he does not call himself a photographer. In doing so, relevant new and underrepresented aspects of this conceptually driven artists are shown. Exhibition held at Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Germany from Sept. 14-Nov. 4, 2012, Albertina, Wien, Mar. 1-June 2, 2013
Helen Levitt by Helen Levitt( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helen Levitt (1913-2009) numbers among the foremost exponents of street photography. As a passionate observer and chronicler of everyday street life in New York, she spent decades documenting residents of the city's poorer neighbourhoods such as Lower East Side and Harlem. Levitt's oeuvre stands out for her sense of dynamics and surrealistic sense of humour, and her employment of color photography was revolutionary: Levitt numbers among those photographers who pioneered and established color as a means of artistic expression. The book accompanying the retrospective of the Albertina Museum features around 130 of her iconic works. Many of these photos come from Helen Levitt's personal estate, and this exhibition represents their first-ever public showing. Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (11.10.2018-27.01.2019)
Film-Stills : Fotografien zwischen Werbung, Kunst und Kino = Photographs between advertising, art, and cinema( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Film-Stills sind sowohl visuelle Spuren des Films als auch eigenständige fotografische Bildformen. Während Dreharbeiten auf Filmsets von eigens engagierten Standfotografen angefertigt, basieren sie auf einem komplizierten und aufwendigen Verfahren, bei dem Szenen des Films speziell für den Fotoapparat reinszeniert werden, womit der Film von einem bewegten zu einem statischen Medium transformiert wird. In einer umfassenden Ausstellung widmet sich die Albertina erstmals diesem hybriden Genre und zeigt 150 Film-Stills der 1910er bis 1970er Jahre. Werden Film-Stills herkömmlicherweise als blosse filmische Referenz (miss)verstanden, die eher den Blick des Kameramannes und des Regisseurs als den des Fotografen widerspiegeln, so werden sie hier als eigenständige fotografische Bildformen untersucht, die einer selbstständigen, durchaus vom Film losgelösten Betrachtung bedürfen. Verschiedene Aspekte der intermedialen Bezüge dieses Genres werden untersucht: Die von Brüchen und Kopplungen gekennzeichneten Schnittstellen zwischen Fotografie und Film, die Funktion von Standbildern sowie ihr Verhältnis zur bildenden Kunst werden beleuchtet. Fotografen: Raymond Cauchetier, Horst von Harbou, Chris Marker, Atelier Manassé, Hans Natge, Angelo Novi, Georges Pierre, Karl Struss et al. Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (04.11.2016-26.02.2017)
Closed cities by Gregor Sailer( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his impressive photo series Gregor Sailer examines the forms taken by closed cities in Siberia, Azerbaijan, Qatar, Chile, Algeria, Western Sahara, and Argentina. The term "closed city" was originally coined for the Soviet Union, where, for various reasons, the existence of numerous towns was long kept secret. Some of them were not officially "opened up" and added to maps until the early years of this century. Even today, there are still artificially created urban zones across the globe that are hermetically sealed off from the outside world either by walls or by the hostile landscape that surrounds them

Gregor Sailer : the Potemkin village by Gregor Sailer( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to legend, the phrase Potemkin village can be traced back to the Russian field marshal Prince Grigory Aleksandrovich Potemkin. In 1787, the minion of Catherine the Great purportedly had entire villages erected as painted façades along the paths of her travels to the recently conquered Crimean territory in an effort to veil the true, run-down face of the region. Following Closed Cities (Kehrer 2012), Gregor Sailer's new project once again presents actual architectural manifestations driven by political, military, and economic motives: combat training centers in the USA and Europe, faithful replicas of European cities in China, and vehicle test cities in Sweden. And finally, a classical Potemkin village in Russia, where, on the occasion of a visit by Vladimir Putin to Suzdal on the Golden Ring and a triple summit in the city of Ufa, whole streets were masked with adhesive foil, wallpaper, and tarpaulins in an effort to provide the abandoned buildings with a feigned sense of activity. Sailer's pictures give the viewer access to the world of fakes, copies, and stage sets and call these at times absurd aberrations of our contemporary society into question.

Ernst Haas : on set by Ernst Haas( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume considers the film-stills of Ernst Haas, transgressing the borders between static photography and the moving image. Haas worked with a variety of directors from Vittorio de Sica to John Huston, Gene Kelly and Michael Cimino covering movie genres from suspense ('The Third Man';'The Train') to the Western ('The Oregon Trail'; 'Little Big Man'), and from comedy ('Miracle in Milan'; 'Love and Death') to musicals ('West Side Story'; 'Hello Dolly'). While the photographic reference system known as the film-still has existed since the birth of cinema, inherent to the genre are precisely those parameters that are essential qualities of Haas photography, and which interact in a striking manner with his images made independently of film. On the one hand, we find photographs documenting shoots and depictions of individual scenes. On the other hand, it is Haas' clear ambition to inscribe a temporal dimension into these images; to impose filmic principles into the stills which, viewed in a sequence, generate movement and narrative
Österreich : Fotografie 1970-2000( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Österreichische Photographen befragen das eigene Land und seine soziokulturellen Identitäten. Ins Licht gerückt werden das Land, die politische Vergangenheit, Milieus und urbane Räume. Der Blick nach innen offenbart oftmals Aspekte, die im Begriff waren, zu verschwinden. Die 1970er Jahre sind von einem Aufbruch geprägt, in dem Photographen ein neues Selbstverständnis entwickeln und sich vielfältige photographische Strömungen herausbilden: Dokumentarische Strategien und die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Medium selbst zeichnen die Entwicklung der Photographie zwischen 1970 und 2000 aus. Vertretene Photographen: Heimrad Bäcker, Gottfried Bechtold, Norbert Brunner & Michael Schuster, Heinz Cibulka, Peter Dressler, VALIE EXPORT, Johannes Faber, Bernhard Fuchs, Seiichi Furuya, Robert F. Hammerstiel, Bodo Hell, Helmut Kandl, Leo Kandl, Friedl Kubelka, Branko Lenart, Elfriede Mejchar, Lisl Ponger, Gerhard Roth, Günther Selichar, Nikolaus Walter, Manfred Willmann.00Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (14.06.-08.10.2017) / Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg, Salzburg, Austria (25.11.2017-04.03.2018)

Das Bild der Anderen = Picturing others by Vera Brandner( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any photographic representation of distant lifeworlds also entails a visual formulation of what the Other might be. Each photograph taken creates countless photographic images of the Self and of the Other, rigidifying the boundaries separating oneself from the Others and validating one's own prejudices. Within this field of tension created by the identification of the Other and of the Self through photography, Vera Brandner's photographic work is to be seen both as a reflexive exploration0and as a visual response. In her portraits of people living in countries such as Angola, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine she pursues an image strategy built on dialogue and communication
