Joachim_Schmid_E_Book

There is a nice discussion of my book Joachim Schmid Works and of Joachim Schmid’s E-Book (see above) on the Times Literary Supplement blog today, written by Dennis Duncan.

Two more books were recently discussed by literary critics:

Jack van der Weide reviews They Were Like Poetry in the James Joyce Quarterly.

Matthew Kirschenbaum discusses “Speak! eyes – En zie! in his book Track Changes, A Literary History of Word Processing, published by Harvard University Press.

New book: Joachim Schmid Works

Thirty-three photographs of Joachim Schmid working on his E-Book.*

Joachim Schmid is well-known for his work with other people’s photographs. It is less known, or even unknown, that he takes the camera to hand himself sometimes. This little book documents just that and thereby provides a so far unseen aspect of Joachim Schmid’s practice. We get a glimpse of the artist’s movements in the age of lcd-screens and in addition to that a portrait of the streets that write to us.

Full color digital printing, sewn paperback, size 10.5 x 15 cm, 44 pages. Edition of 75 copies, not numbered.

Priced at €24, plus shipping. Available now through my webshop or through email.

The book will be launched at Offprint London taking place at Tate Modern from May 20-22. You can find it at the table I am sharing with Joachim.

* E-Book was published in February of 2016 and is based on a letter Joachim wrote to me. The words of this letter remain invisible in his book but every E is included in the form of a photograph. The various E’s, almost 500 of them, were photographed in a number of different cities during 2015. There is no digital version of the book.

The Lovers

the_lovers

I published a new book titled The Lovers. It is based around screenshots that were made while watching ‘Discarded: Joachim Schmid and the Anti-Museum,’ a video about Joachim Schmid’s work, realized by the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art in 2014. At one point in this documentary Schmid is at a flea market in Berlin, looking through a pile of junked photographs. For a brief moment his perusal and the movements of his hands caused the stack to tell a story.

Full color digital printing, 24 page stapled brochure, size 21 x 28 cm, in enclosure size 23 x 32 cm.

Edition limited to 100 numbered copies.

Priced at € 28,- plus shipping. See some images here.

Published in Berlin, 2015.

Order through the webshop or through email.
