The film installations of Julian Rosefeldt (born 1965) combine political critique with visual opulence and glossy production values. To celebrate his recent work "The Shift," Rosefeldt has designed this volume, which combines documentation with recomposed works from the 1990s. These lesser known earlier works represent a point of departure for the artist's present interest in forgotten and hidden places.

Julian Rosefeldt's films are permeated with slapstick and satire. According to critic Stephan Berg, they avoid political correctness while playing with vocabularies of kitsch, inappropriateness and exaggeration. They "distort--in the best sense of the word--the world to a point where it is no longer recognizable."

Indian flower sellers, Turkish trash collectors, Chinese cooks, and Thai prostitutes--Munich-born artist Julian Rosefeldt confronts the viewers of his video project, Asylum, with stereotypical European views of foreigners and ethnic minorities. In his seductively opulent tableaux vivants, he exaggerates and parodies popular conceptions about roles and professions, while embedding his protagonists in strangely surreal scenes and ritual contexts. This publication features photographs taken during the shooting of the video, film stills from Rosefeldt's nine Asylum films, probing essays, and an interview with the artist.
