Shop • GoSee Book Tip : The Maison Européenne de la Photographie rediscovers the oeuvre of Franco-Brazilian photographer Marcel Gautherot and presents icons of modern architectural photography

22.08.2016 • Scheidegger & Spiess presents the first monograph about the eminent French photographer Marcel Gautherot (1910–1996), who moved to Brazil in 1940 and lived there for the rest of his life. Gautherot is best known for his photos of the construction of the capital city, Brasilia, for which he first photographed the workers and construction sites and then the finished buildings in all of their glamorous elegance. Several of the photos are among the icons of modern architectural photography. On display are travel impressions, ethnological photographic explorations and Brazilian customs, everyday shots, and formal experiments, as well as the confrontation with modernist stylistic elements.

With about 240 carefully reproduced photographs from all creative periods, the book also includes essays by international experts. It accompanies an exibition at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris in summer 2016. It was created in cooperation with Instituto Moreira Salles, Rio de Janeiro, and the publishing company Scheidegger & Spiess AG.

21.08.2016 • In the three decades from 1978 to 2008, Frida Parmeggiani was Europe’s most sought-after costume designer. She has worked for and with Hans Hollmann, Götz Friedrich, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Samuel Beckett, and Robert Wilson, among many others. On the occasion of her 70th birthday, the Mozarteum University of Salzburg in cooperation with Merano Arte presents an exhibition that is dedicated entirely to new designs. In conjunction, Schlebruegge.Editor publishes first comprehensive book about the Merano-born artist’s work. It shows the complex relationship between nature, space, volume and textiles.

For the first time in her career, Parmeggiani is working without storyline or actors. Fine fabrics in combination with metal elements or objects culled from nature produce stylistically rigorous, aesthetic costume installations. Last year in an interview, she was asked where every costume begins: “It all starts with the design. In opera, designing starts with the music. I follow the music and ask myself, what colors it conveys for me. Not every music has radiant, deep colors, there...

Shop • GoSee Tip : 'From her wooden sleep...' Masterpieces made of wood from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, collected by Ydessa Hendeles, appearing as an art book at Hatje Cantz and in an exhibition in London & Tel Aviv

17.08.2016 • Touching and eerily beautiful are the masterpieces made of wood from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries presented in a contemporary work of art and now published as a book at Hatje Cantz. 'From her wooden sleep…' is dedicated to the work of Canadian artist Ydessa Hendeles. Sensitive and lovingly curated by Hendeles herself, the publication includes more than 440 photos of her 'Tableau vivant' with around 150 antique ball-jointed dolls. For two decades she collected puppets from the years 1520 to 1930, cataloged them and researched their individual history. Accompanying notes provide information on the art-historical background of the wooden figures and on Hendeles' curatorial approach to the artifacts.

The result is a catalog for the exhibition at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts. To do justice to the numerous details of the installation, which was exhibited in the theaters of London's ICA and is on display thru October at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Hendeles created this stunning, almost 500-page art book together with Hatje Cantz. The book also features...

Shop • A TRUE STORY films the official video for the song 'Instalove' by Max Yeah in Barcelona

10.08.2016 • 'Instalove – Max Yeah' is a German artist and music producer. When A TRUE STORY heard the song for the first time, we knew we were interested in making a video for it.

Philipp WOLFF c/o A TRUE STORY tells GoSee: “The topic and the lyrics really made it interesting. Because it’s a pop song that tells a dramatic truth. I really love this combination. Instead of collaborating with a music label, we decided to just do it by ourselves to keep full creative control. So, we had the idea of portraying a group of young female Instagramers. We asked our friends at Intermate to help us out, and they connected us with Anouschka Marlene, Valentina Belleza and Sandra Lambeck: three beautiful girls with a strong profile on Instagram.

Long story short: We flew to Barcelona with them and went through the city for 24 hours. We hardly gave them any directions because we wanted it to be as real as possible. It was pretty much rebel without a crew. I did the camera work myself with my assistant Norman by my side. That’s it. As soon as we had the final product, we showed it to the girls. They...

Shop • Fields Of Battle – Lands Of Peace, 1914 – 1918. The photo book by Michael St Maur Sheil about the scenes of WWI and what they look like today, published by Edition Lammerhuber

10.07.2016 • Fields Of Battle – Lands Of Peace, 1914 – 1918 shows in poetic photographs how nature turns the scars of war magically into flowering landscapes. The book was published for the commemoration of the centennial anniversary of the Battle of Verdun. During the celebration on 29 May, 2016, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel held a memorial for the victims. The photos of the book were exhibited on 30 May in Verdun and can now be seen at an exhibition in London.

On a ten year photographic odyssey through the lands of the First World War, traveling from the dust of the Namib deserts to the frozen heights of the Vosges, Michael St Maur Sheil has created a unique collection of images which document how time and nature have transformed these places of horror and killing into landscapes of great beauty and tranquility.

Michael St. Maur Sheil impressively explains why the photographs were taken by referring to the thoughts of veteran PJ Campbell, as he left the ruined war scene on the Somme: “No, they were not lonely, I saw the barren land before...
