Photography from The Walther Collection

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Brian Wallis. Text by Geoffrey Batchen, Tina Campt, Christopher Phillips, George Baker, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Michael Jennings, Ulrike Schneider, Allan Sekula, Joel Smith. Interview by Artur Walther.

Throughout the modern era, photography has been enlisted not only to document but also to classify the world and its people. Its status bolstered by a popular belief in the scientific objectivity of photographic evidence, photography has been used, from the earliest days of the medium, to produce and organize knowledge about the external world.
Published to accompany the exhibition The Order of Things: Photography from The Walther Collection, this catalogue investigates the production and uses of serial portraiture, vernacular imagery, architectural surveys and time-based performance in photography from the 1880s to the present, bringing together works by artists from Europe, Africa, Asia and North America.
Setting early modernist photographers Karl Blossfeldt and August Sander in dialogue with contemporary artists such as Ai Weiwei, Nobuyoshi Araki, Richard Avedon, Zanele Muholi, Stephen Shore and Zhuang Huan, The Order of Things illustrates how typological methods in photography have developed around the globe. Edited by Brian Wallis, The Order of Things includes texts by Geoffrey Batchen, Tina Campt, Christopher Phillips, George Baker, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Michael Jennings, Ulrike Schneider, Allan Sekula and Joel Smith.

The Magic of ThingsThe Magic of Things

Poster Collection 24

Published by Lars Müller Publishers.
By Gerda Breuer.

The Magic of Things explores a former advertising strategy of Swiss product posters in which banal, everyday objects—butter, a sewing machine, or shoes—are presented as desirable objects enticing us to buy. Free from any further contextualization, the objects acquire a sensual presence and magical aura. The product poster had its heyday in Switzerland in the 1940s with designers such as Niklaus Stoecklin, Peter Birkhäuser, or Otto Baumberger. As consumer society developed, however, the exclusive focus on the product and the brand name was no longer enough—in advertising, the feelings associated with the object as it related to life grew increasingly important. Today it is in the cultural poster that the magical depiction of things is experiencing a kind of renaissance.

Beyond the New on the Agency of ThingsBeyond the New on the Agency of Things

Published by Koenig Books.
By Hella Jongerius & Louise SchouwenbergEdited with text by Angelika Nollert.

In this engaging new book, design theorist Louise Schouwenberg (born 1954) and designer Hella Jongerius (born 1963) examine the meaning and agency of objects, exploring how things act as mediators between people and the world both in everyday life and in the context of the museum. As technology continues to change these relationships, Schouwenberg and Jongerius thoughtfully consider the agency of our objects.

Questioning the market's obsession with novelty in design, the authors try to develop criteria for recognizing true cultural innovation. What distinguishes novelty for the sake of novelty from something truly new? Designed by the legendary Irma Boom, the book itself is a love letter to creative design.

The Shape of ThingsThe Shape of Things

Photographs from Robert B. Menschel

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
By Quentin Bajac. Text by Sarah Hermanson Meister.

This survey explores 60 remarkable photographs from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, all acquired with the support of Robert B. Menschel and meticulously selected for the book by the museum’s chief curator of photography, Quentin Bajac.

Ranging from the contemporary artist Andreas Gursky to William Henry Fox Talbot, one of the medium’s founding figures, these works collectively tell the story of photography from its beginnings, but upend and newly illuminate that story through their arrangement in reverse chronological order. Each image is the subject of a brief, elegant text. The book borrows its title from a work by Carrie Mae Weems, one of the many great photographs that Menschel has contributed to the collection.

Quentin Bajac is The Joel and Anne Ehrenkranz Chief Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Sarah Hermanson Meister is a Curator in the Department of Photography at MoMA, New York.

The Gaze of ThingsThe Gaze of Things

Japanese Photography in the Context of Provoke

Published by La Fábrica.
Text by Nuria Enguita, Miryam Sas, Akihito Yasumi.

Focusing on the two most influential groups of postwar Japanese photographers—the Vivo group (1957–61) and the editorial collective responsible for the short-lived but legendary Provoke journal (1968)—The Gaze of Things supplies an overview of Japanese art and photography from the 1950s to the present, with a particular emphasis on the transformations undergone by photography during the period. Photographers associated with Vivo (including Ikko Narahara, Shomei Tomatsu, Eikoh Hosoe and Akira Sato) and Provoke (Daido Moriyama, Yutaka Takanashi and Takuma Nakahira) developed a new photographic language during the seismic shifts in postwar Japanese society, much of which centered on critiques of American occupation and Japan’s adoption of American ways of life. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Bombas Gens Centre d’Art in Valencia, Spain, this catalog surveys these artists’ lasting impact into the 21st century.

The Feeling of Things By Adam CarusoThe Feeling of Things By Adam Caruso

Published by Ediciones Polígrafa.

A principal of the London-based architecture firm Caruso St. John, "Gritty Brit" Adam Caruso has been writing intensively since the mid-1990s. His essays, published in The Architect's Journal, OASE, Blueprint and Tate, focus on architectural practice outside the tradition of Modernism. Some of Caruso's key writings, gathered here, include "Sigurd Lewerentz and a Material Basis for Form" (1997) , "The Tyranny of the New" (1998) and "The Emotional City" (2000).

Adam Caruso was born in 1962 and studied architecture at McGill University, Montreal. He and Peter St. John worked for Florian Beigel and Arup Associates prior to establishing their practice in 1990. For many years they have taught internationally--for example at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design in 2005. Recent London projects include Gagosian Gallery, Britannia Street and the refurbishment of the Barbican Concert Hall. Caruso St. John is currently working with Tate Britain to modernize the gallery's master plan.
