Armadillo House Marc Camille Chaimowicz & Roger Diener

Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2022, 96 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 12 × 20.3 cm, English

Price: €18

A conversation between the artist Marc Camille Chaimowicz and the architect Roger Diener about their collaboration, The Armadillo House in Basel. Chaimowicz claims the interior as a pictorial space while also referencing the history of architecture, art and design. His agenda has been described as the celebration of domestic detritus and his spatial installations appear as painterly tableaus. From the 1970s onwards he advanced a critique of rigid, austere minimalism. For Diener, on the other hand, pictorial space is not a factor. Instead, he puts forward a modernist notion of non-expression, with architecture functioning as its raw material. In his architecture, it is not the insertion of culturally codified images but rather spatial configurations that shape the movement and circulation of inhabitants.

Paul Thek in Italy (1962-1976) Valérie Da Costa

Published by les presses du réel, Dijon, 2022, 316 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 24 cm, English / French

Price: €24

From 1962 to 1976, Paul Thek traveled to Italy, for multiple extended stays. In Rome, he discovered ancient sculpture, the achievements of the Renaissance, the Baroque churches, but above all the contemporary artistic effervescence of the capital. In Sicily, with his friend the photographer Peter Hujar, he was confronted with the question of death through reliquaries, religious processions or the extraordinary Capuchin catacombs. On the island of Ponza, he immersed himself in an ecstatic Mediterranean lifestyle, in osmosis with nature and the sea in particular.
