Printed in Germany. Yellow / Red / Green
(2014)
“Printed in Germany” exists as a stand-alone visual object and extends the artist’s conceptual and aesthetic concerns into book form. It reproduces a complete selection of the artist’s painstakingly constructed photographs and features striking graphic design in the complete absence of language, with no essay, captions, colophon or even a title page. Through clever manipulations of cropping, ordering and pagination “Printed in Germany” offers readers an original aesthetic experience and a comprehensive insight into the practise of one of today’s most thought-provoking artists while – through pure visual splendour – pushing the boundaries of the artist’s book into new realms.
Printed in Germany is made up of 3 Books – Yellow / Red / Green: 27 x 21cm. Each 372 pages with 136 colour images. Total of 3 -1116 pp. with 414 coloured illustrations, paperback. Buchhandlung Walther König. Photographer Carl Warner.
