Collective Sisyphus Allan Sekula

Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln & M HKA, Antwerp, 2019, 237 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 23 cm, English / Spanish

Price: €25

Allan Sekula was one of the most important figures in modern photography of the second half of the twentieth century. His work focused on a critique of the links that photography has always maintained with the economy, work and the politics of representation. From his beginnings in the seventies, Sekula became a reference by incorporating textuality into photography in a way that had been previously denied it by modern art. His book Photography Against the Grain: Essays and Photo Works, 1973-1983 (1984), a key work of the new photographic discourse of the late twentieth century, enshrined him as one of the least orthodox historians of the medium.

Instructional Photography: Learning How to Live Now Carmen Winant

Published by SPBH Editions, London, 2021, 120 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 10.5 × 14.8 cm, English

Price: €16

Instructional Photography: Learning How to Live Now by artist and writer Carmen Winant, is an investigation of a genre of photographs Winant calls “instructional”, it asks: can photographs teach, in and of themselves? If so, how might we look to them to demonstrate new possibilities, from social organizing to self-actualization?

Alternating between found images and shorter, text-based observations (which serve to reinforce, rather than explain, one another), Winant delves into this new category of images through her own collection, understanding them as something beyond, or at least in between, documentary and fine art.
