Item description for Isa Genzken: Der Spiegel 1989-1991 by Isa Genzken...
Isa Genzken's Der Spiegel 1989-1991 is a limited edition artist's book of deceptive simplicity: it consists of 121 reproductions of black-and-white photographs cut out of the influential German newsweekly Der Spiegel over a period of three years. The images are presented starkly, bereft of photo credits or captions: having been freed from their usual meaning-giving context, the images assume a mystery and free-floating universality as the viewer unconsciously struggles to recall the specificity of the sensational news story and headline to which they were once attached. The book is produced in a limited edition of 700 numbered copies.
