Since the late 1960s, acclaimed Czech experimental photographer Katharina Sieverding (born 1944) has worked with photography, film, video and slide projections to address political and ecological concerns as well as the construction of identity. Before Jeff Wall or the post-Becher generation, Sieverding was making large-scale photographs as posters, or walls of posters. This catalogue surveys her career, documenting in particular her newest project, Looking at the Sun at Midnight. For this piece, Sieverding downloaded about 100,000 images of the surface of the sun made by NASA between May 2010 and June 2013, condensing them into a dynamic portrait of its surface. In this volume this new work is placed in dialogue with a representative selection of series from 1968 to 2013.

Czech photographer Katharina Sieverding (born 1944) recently undertook the first comprehensive sorting of the picture archive she has been assembling for over 40 years. She edited not for the quality of the negatives, but rather for the fragmentary byproducts of the analogue enlargement process. This catalogue presents montages of chance details from over 1,800 photographs.

This full-color catalogue presents a broad overview of Katharina Sieverding's technically processed and manipulated photographic close-ups. They are reproduced here as full-bleeds--faces close to the lens, eyes staring directly into the camera with proposed implication. Sierverding creates what has been described as a “phantasmagoric series of characters... relentless, confrontational and frightening but also seductive and vulnerable.” Accompanying these 300 images is Joseph Beuys' overview of Sieverding's early work, up to her current works that focus on self-portraits.

Katharina Sieverding, known for her merciless reexamination of Germany's historic past in Fassbinder-esque videos, here delves into the scientific collection of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Sieverding's contribution to the already vast literature on Goethe and his scientific vision compares the delicacy of eighteenth-century botanical studies with the dramatic past of the Weimar Republic.
