Indifference Mathias Poledna

Published by Galerie Buchholz, Köln; MUMOK, Wien & Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2021, 102 pages (colour & b/w ill.), slipcase, 21.5 × 28.5 cm, English / German

Price: €39

Mathias Poledna’s film Indifference (2018) further advances the artist’s ongoing inquiry into modernity’s visual imaginary. The film unfolds as a series of brief, hallucinatory scenes set in the waning days of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy at the cusp of World War I. It details in elegant restraint the seemingly mundane routine of a single protagonist played by French actor Alain-Fabien Delon. His character – an Austrian officer / aristocrat – is drawn from types common in German-speaking fin-de-siècle literature, as well as from historical dramas and period films produced in the Cold War era. While evocative of the larger backdrop of traumatic modernization and conflict in early 20th century European history, Poledna’s film forgoes a broader narrative focusing instead on the transient and disjointed.

Saturated Light Wolfgang Tillmans

Published by Galerie Buchholz, Köln & Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2021, 416 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 25 × 25 cm, English

Price: €39

For almost thirty years, Wolfgang Tillmans has been creating new pictorial worlds of abstract photography with his Silver works, which sound out and compellingly expand the boundaries and representability of photographic processes. Brought together for the first time in one opulent artist’s book, Tillmans describes the pictures as ‘stained, impure, bright, unstable, exhausted, fugitive, smear, shimmer, as solid colours’. In addition to the pictures, Tillmans also shows images of the Silver works in exhibition settings: as elements of installations, for example at K21 in Düsseldorf in 2013 or as pure Silver installations like those at Tate Britain in 2003, the Venice Biennial in 2009 or, most recently in 2020, at WIELS in Brussels.
