Ringgummimatte Micha Zweifel

Published by Spector Books, Leipzig, 2021, 84 pages, spiral bound hardcover (colour & b/w ill.), 23.6 × 32.2 cm, English / German

Price: €28

Micha Zweifel is an artist who works with what he finds in his surroundings: materials, concepts, and motifs—the flotsam of cultural remnants whose use, identity, or meaning have become unstable, but still shape where and how we live. Ringgummimatte is a montage of such “finds,” showing Zweifel’s work alongside photos and conversations from recent years. It features texts by artist and writer Sabrina Chou, journalist Michel Rebosura, writer and art historian Vivian Sky Rehberg, poet Lisa Robertson, curator Eveline Suter, as well as an email exchange between Christoph Zweifel and the artist. Writer and editor Matthew Stadler has captioned each image in the book with a quote from Zweifel’s library, forming a composition of what is adjacent to Zweifel’s work, like footsteps in a neighbors apartment.

Ringgummimatte is designed by Studio Krispin Heé (Krispin Heé, Tim Wetter) and published on the occasion of Micha Zweifel’s ongoing exhibition Zur Sackgasse 4. Stock (5.12.2020 – 27.6.2021) at Kunstmuseum Luzern and the Manor Kunstpreis Zentralschweiz Luzern 2020.

Devotional Cinema Nathaniel Dorsky

Published by Tuumba Press, Berkeley, 2014, 54 pages, 13.9 × 20.1 cm, English

Price: €13

“The films of Nathaniel Dorsky blend a beauteous celebration of the sensual world with a deep sense of introspection and solitude. They are occasions for reflection and meditation, on light, landscape, time and the motions of consciousness. Their luminous photography emphasizes the elemental frisson between solidity and luminosity, between spirit and matter, while his uniquely developed montage permits a fluid and flowing experience of time. Dorsky’s films reveal the mystery behind everyday existence, providing intimations of eternity.” – Steve Polta, San Francisco Cinematheque.

In Devotional Cinema, Dorsky moves through meditations on image-moments in works by key filmmakers (Carl Theodor Dreyer, Yasujiro Ozu, Michelangelo Antonioni, and Roberto Rossellini), and arrives at the heart of what constitutes a devotional practice.
