    “After a long period in eclipse, documentary has undergone a marked revival in recent art. This has been spurred by two phenomena: the exhibition of photographic and video work on political issues at Documenta and numerous biennials; and increasing attention to issues of injustice, violence, and trauma in the war zones of the endemically conflict-ridden twenty-first century. The renewed attention to photography and video in the gallery and museum world has helped make documentary one of the most prominent modes of art-making today. Unsurprisingly, this development has been accompanied by a rich strain of theoretical and historical writing on documentary. This anthology provides a much-needed contextual grounding for documentary art. It explores the roots of documentary in modernism and its critique under postmodernism; surveys current theoretical thinking about documentary; and examines a wide range of work by artists within, around, or against documentary through their own writings and interviews”

    “Henrik Olesen’s aesthetic is reminiscent of early conceptual art: terse, stripped down, and to the point. This serves his subject matter well as he takes aim at the heterosexuality of conceptual art, history, biology and other discourses. The book gathers several of Olesen’s projects about the overt and subconscious societal constraints put on LGBT people. Inside, Olesen confronts the reader with a collection of sodomy laws from around the world, and installations of his work gathering evidence of homosexuality in birds and dogs. This is an unapologetic, forceful, and beautiful collection of thought and action.”

    Since the mid-1990s, Henrik Olesen has used media such as collage, sculpture, and minimalistic spatial intervention to investigate the social construction of identity and its historiography. Through the appropriation of source images and contextual shifts not dissimilar to the method invented by Aby Warburg for his “Mnemosyne Atlas,” Olesen probes the associations between homosexuality and its criminalization in the past, as well as in the present. His archival work sheds light on the enduring existence of spaces for Others, and inscribes homosexual subculture once more into the history of art and culture

    The real story of Irene was a sad one: A secret star of the Zurich’s Bohème working as a prostitute until her tragic early accidental death. For three weeks Hecke photographed her daily routine in Zurich and accompanied her to Rome where Irene always celebrated her birthday. The result was a subtle and strong portrait of a woman, both beautiful and confident, erotic and with a proud elegance. The photos, a mix of choreographed and documentary work, capture an unusual immediacy and presence. Roswitha Hecke born in Hamburg 1944 also made still photography for Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Éric Rohmer

    “Influential to both art and fashion, Ari Marcopoulos’s unique style of raw immediacy has made him one of the most important contemporary photographers. For thirty years, photographer Ari Marcopoulos has been pioneering contemporary photography by documenting subcultures such as skateboarders and graffiti artists, as well as landscapes and his own family and friends. Since his days printing photographs for Andy Warhol, he has amassed a huge body of work marked by its arresting and unsentimental intimacy that has been influential to the worlds of art, fashion, and photography. Bound to mimic a phone book, Ari Marcopoulos: Directory presents a collection of approximately 1,200 photographs, with curator and critic Neville Wakefield providing insightful commentary on some of Marcopoulos’s singular images.”

    “Born in Amsterdam in 1957, Ari Marcopoulos came to New York in 1979 and quickly became part of a downtown art scene that included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Robert Mapplethorpe. Since then, Marcopoulos has become recognized as a leading documentarian of contemporary culture, having chronicled the emerging hip hop scene, shot snowboarders in action and revealed the vicissitudes of his family life. Marcopoulos always appears to have forged a strong connection with the people he photographs, whether celebrated figures-from Andy Warhol to Kiki Smith, John Cage to LL Cool J-or more obscure personalities, so that he captures, without sentimentality or voyeurism, the intimate sensation of their daily lives. His images are particular to a time and place, but reach out to us via familiar themes such as family and the longing for adventure. The first retrospective on Marcopoulos, Within Arm’s Reach collects work from three decades, and is supplemented with an essay by Stephanie Cannizzo”

    “Timeless and yet a body of work very much of its own post-modern time” (Danto): In a series of photographs evoking B-movies, French New Wave cinema and the films of Hitchcock, Cindy Sherman portrays herself in a variety of guises as stereotypical female characters
