Peter Fischli and David Weiss

Peter Fischli and David Weiss Work from Der Lauf der Dinge. “An unambiguously CORRECT result of experiments exists; this is obtained when it works, when this construction collapses. Then again, there is a BEAUTIFUL which ranks above the CORRECT; this is obtained when it’s a close shave or the construction collapses the way we want […]

Joachim Schmid

Joachim Schmid Work from O Campo. Also see his other works, he has a diverse and fascinating body of work. “My new book O Campo, or in its translation The Field, is a photographic compilation of football fields in Brazilian cities.

Christoph Gielen

Christoph Gielen Work from his oeuvre. “Christoph Gielen’s photographs document urban development on three continents and over four decades and they raise universal questions about the social nature of our world. To expose the macro-structures of city planning, Gielen takes a long view. From high above in a helicopter, he focuses on housing developments, construction […]

Christine Rusche

Christine Rusche Work from Fictional Landscapes. These images are a really interesting combination of Ulrich Görlich’s 15 Landschaften and Gerhard Richter’s Overpainted Photographs.

These works speak about ideas of landscape and development in a way that is […]

Our knowledge of it is limited and much remains unknown and a mystery. In the […]

Brookhart Jonquil

Brookhart Jonquil Work from On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen Paradox (where each of the six pages of Bell’s Theorem is crumpled up identically) and Untitled (Essay Without Words no. 1 + no.2). “Brookhart Jonquil’s work, On the Einstein Podolsky Rosen Paradox, confounds our sense of time and space, working off the assumption that crumpling a […]

Sofia Hultén

Sofia Hultén Work from Points in a Room Condensing. “Sofia Hultén tries in her work to repair things that are broken, or alternately, to make them disappear. Rarely are these two objectives achieved independently, so that the focus of her videos and photographs becomes instead the circular process of making and unmaking of a series […]
