Photo Book(s)
Daan van Golden
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2013, 412 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 24 × 32 cm, English
Price: €50

Daan van Golden Photo Book(s) reproduces the photo pages of Van Golden’s earlier books (most of which have long been out of print), as well as two little known photo essays, in their entirety.

The reproduction of preexisting material, the insistent adherence to a set of core elements, gestures and images, the conviction that creating different juxtapositions and interactions between those same elements yields new readings and meaning: these are the hallmark of van Golden’s work, and here for the first time they serve as the organising principle for a book, one whose patient rhythm creates the space for the logic of a practice to establish its sensible presence.

Vertikal Klub
Willem Oorebeek
Published by NN editions, Brussels, 2013, 64 pages (b/w ill.), 20.5 × 27 cm, English, German, French
Price: €50

Vertikal Klub is a manual for future installations of the “Vertical Club”, a project launched by Willem Oorebeek in 1994 and which has been developing ever since. The book not only compiles in an archaeological way present and (potential) future members of the “Vertical Club”, but also reflects on the use and representation of the human figure in print media. Text and image are connected in a radical way, pushing the idea of administrative visual statistics towards the absurd. “Vertikal Klub” raises the question as to the admission policy and representational use of the human figure in dark times.

Bohemian Grove
John Knight
Published by Galerie Neu, Berlin, 2013, 32 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 22.7 cm, English
Price: €25

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition John Knight, a work in situ, Galerie Neu/MD 72, Berlin, 6 June–20 July, 2013 where Knight repurposed the wooden panelling form the outside of the building that housed Galerie Neu until 2013.

“this panelling moved to the project space of the same gallery called MD 72, in Berlin too. It was adapted to the space of MD 72 by cutting holes for doors, windows, electric sockets etc. From the top to the bottom, from the outside to the inside.”

Bohemian Grove will record its own history, and will grow larger and smaller simultaneously, with every exhibition. A process of dematerialisation. The ghosts of exhibitions past will increasingly thin out the remaining material presence the work has, until nothing but a few very dispersed sawdust particles remain. And doors and windows we cannot enter because we are in the hands of time”—gerlach en koop, 2017
