Exhibition Uncensored Books

The Plan will be on view in Uncensored Books, an exhibition curated by Natasha Christia which runs from April 7 to 18 during Belgrade Photo Month.

The show brings together a series of photobooks and installations that address in a critical way, through both their content and form, the production, uses / misuses, consumption and circulation of the Image today within dominant mass ideology’s narrative systems. By exploring new dissemination and audience engagement channels, many of its featured titles point to the potential role of photography and books can assume as activism tools.

Photobooks and installations by Valentina Abenavoli (Akina Books), Francesco Amorosino (self-published), Juliá (KWY Ediciones), Lewis Bush (dummy-Brave Books), Brad Feuerhelm (Chaco Books), Amak Mahmoodian (ICVL Studio / RRB Publishing), Christof Nuessli (Cpress), Carlos Spottorno (Astiberri Ediciones), Europe: An Illustrated Introduction to Migrants and Refugees and Fictional Journal.

Photobook projects by: Patrícia Almeida(Ghost Editions), Julián Barón (self-published / Editorial RM), Martin Bollati-Rigoberto Díaz Julián- Veronica Fieiras(Chaco Books), Brad Feuerhelm (Paralaxe Editions), Ben Helton (self-published), Edmund Clark (Here Press), Daniel Mayrit (Phree /Riot Books), Christof Nuessli (Cpress), Elisabeth Tonnard (self-published), Jan Dirk van der Burg (self-published).

An Empty Field – a total home run

dsc_1488

I got a standing ovation. In fact, they said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl and they said it was equal. I got a standing ovation. It lasted for a long period of time. What you do is take — take out your tape — you probably ran it live. I know when I do good speeches. I know when I do bad speeches. That speech was a total home run. They loved it.

Donald Trump referencing his address to the CIA (ABC News, January 25, 2017).

The book has arrived from the printer. For more information, visit this page.

Some great and very very special words.

This book is my complete transcript of President Trump’s address to employees of the CIA the day after his inauguration. To keep in style, the text is cut into bits of 140 or fewer characters. Until the um amazing printing is done, and it’s going to be really great, you can find a digital version here.

B&w digital printing, paperback, size 12.5 x 19 cm, 96 pages.

Priced at €14, plus shipping. Pre-order now through my webshop or through email.

Published in Leerdam, The Netherlands on January 23, 2017.
