Juliane Eirich
Itoshima

Juliane Eirich knew Japan already from previous visits, when she returned in the summer of 2011 in order to work here. But this time things were much different. A few months earlier the earthquake had destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The enthusiasm and curiosity for the foreign country mingled with a subliminal feeling of fear and threat.  » more

Daniel Reuter
History of the Visit

The minimalistic aesthetics of this book remind me of a sophisticated piece of electronic music. It´s not the rhythm or the melody that drives the piece forward, it´s the sound that fills the room while layers of the same but offset played patterns generate complexity.  » more

Post Mortem

Today, death has mostly vanished from public perception. Most people die in institutions, and in case someone actually still dies at home, the corpse is immediately taken away by morticians in order to prepare the burial. But what happens with a corpse between the moment it is given into the care of professionals and the burial? » more

Bottrop-Ebel 76

Michael Wolf is worldwide known for his work about ›life in cities‹ and some of the most significant series have already been published in books: ›Tokyo Compression‹, ›Hong Kong Inside Outside‹, ›A Series of Unfortunate Events‹ to mention a few.

And now ›Bottrop-Ebel 76‹ which is quite a different story. As a student Michael Wolf has photographed the series in 1976 in the small coal-mining village in the Ruhr-District, Germany and submitted it for the exam to his teacher Otto Steinert at the Folkwangschule in Essen - at that time as a classical social documentation sorted by categories such as ›building types‹, ›working population‹, ›youngsters‹ or ›festivities and associations‹. Now with the distance of more than 35 years the work has been looked through carefully again and put together for the book in a much more free manner. » more

The first two editions of this book are sold out. » more

Portraits from above - Hong Kong's informal rooftop communities

Self-built, informal settlements on the roofs of high-rise buildings are an integral part of Hong Kong’s urban landscape. The rise of rooftop communities is closely linked to the migration history from Chinese Mainland to Hong Kong. With each of China’s tumultuous political movements in the 20th century, like the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, there was a corresponding wave of Mainland Chinese migrating to Hong Kong.
