Takao Hiwasaki
Published by Toki-no-Wasuremono, Tokyo,2005, (b/w ill.), 26 × 32 cm, Japanese
Price: €38

Takao Hiwasaki is credited with reviving the wood engraving technique in Japan, where it was introduced by Britain in the Meiji period as a means of quickly reproducing works before falling out of favour with the arrival of photomechanical methods. He taught himself the medium in the 1960s after reading Onchi Koshiro’s book on Japanese printmaking, Nihon no gendai hanga, as a fine art technique rather than for reproduction, applying his Modernist, sometimes Surrealist styles to his compositions. This inspired the formation of the group Nomi no Kai (The Chisels) by admirers and followers of the technique, which helped launch Japan’s wood engraving renaissance in the 1970s.

Passionate Signals
Martha Rosler
Published by Hatje Cantz, Berlin, 2005, 288 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 24.8 × 17.5 cm, English / German
Price: €25

Most of the encounters that unfold in Martha Rosler’s works originate in seemingly ordinary everyday situations: scenes of domestic life or everyday activities such as shopping, watching the news, reading the newspaper, or traveling. The photographic series featured in this book – works from the eighties to the present—are also devoted to these themes. They are studies of the highways and byways of daily life, views of roads, subway tunnels, airports, shopping districts, parking lots, and the like. These photographic documents of Rosler’s also offer critical insights into day-to-day movements within rigidly structured relationships of power.
