Boy George ft. Sinead O’Connor – Death of Samantha

Conversation Portraits. Photo-Suites 1974-2014

Out in Europe already, to be published in USA this Fall.

From the publisher’s website:

One of the most interesting facets of Christine Ljubanovics remarkable artistic career is her series of black-and-white Conversation Portraits, so named because the compositions of twenty-four or thirty-six individual portraits of artists; writers; dancers; curators; film, theater, and museum directors; and other friends form narratives of her encounters with them.

Christine Ljubanovic: Conversation Portraits. Photo-Suites, 19742014 brings together sixty of the portraits taken over the past forty years.

Among those pictured are Yoko Ono; Thomas Hirschhorn; painter Arnulf Rainer; photographer Gisèle Freund; Alfred Pacquement, director of the Centre Pompidou; and poet and novelist Raoul Schrott, who has also contributed a poem to the book. In each case, Ljubanovic and the subject of the portrait chose the meeting place together so that it conveys something of the personality of the subject and provides a framework for the photographic conversation. In addition to composed studio portraits, Ljubanovics photographs therefore show her subjects against the backdrop of theaters, museums, street scenes, city parks, and Parisian cafes. Essays by Robert Fleck and Julia Garimorth complete the book.
With the Conversation Portraits series, Ljubanovic has produced a fascinating picture of todays artistic and cultural scene, and the book will make a contribution to our understanding of this body of work.

Description

The beloved typewriter­its utilitarian beauty, the pleasing percussive action of striking its keys, the singularity of the impressed page­is enjoying a genuine renaissance across the creative industries.

In this authoritative publication, the founders of the Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry, the largest such collection in the world, apply their experience, mining the collection they have created over four decades to present examples produced by more than 200 of the worlds finest typewriter artists. From the early ornamental works produced by secretaries in the late nineteenth century to more recent works that consider the unique position of the typewritten document in the digital age, there is an astonishing and delightful range of creativity in every artwork.

The Art of Typewriting features three main sections: an introduction to the history of the typewriter and its art; an expansive plate section showing key works rendered in exquisite detail; and a reference section featuring biographies of the genres most influential artists and writers. The books layout has been created by Londons leading graphic design studio, Graphic Thought Facility, and each book has a cover with a unique combination of front and back image, meaning no two books are the same.

Occasionally criticiesd for a transience mistaken for lack of direction, Ono still brims with a relentless assurance in ambling along a wholly undefined path but it is out of this unyielding free spirit that, nevertheless, a structure slowly begins to emerge.
