Erwin Wurm's photography is as weird and funny as his sculptures. Erwin Wurm Photographs 1986 - 2018 examines the artistic process through which Wurm created many of his major works and series, from his “Dust Sculptures” and “Fabio Getting Dressed” to his influential “One-Minute Sculptures,” and also features his recent large-format Polaroid photographs.

Independent publishing can be very timely - we are already getting the first books in about covid-19 and the pandemic lockdown!⁠⠀ Max Siedentopf - you know the one that already delighted us with Toiletpapa just a few weeks back -created a survival guide of what to do with your time when being stuck at home in quarantine. Home Alone is a composition of photographs from the internet community translating into action Max Siedentopf's open calls, like "invent a new way to lie on your sofa" or "Create a party makeup look using only what you can find in the fridge" The best pictures from the series, which now comprises over 1000 photos, are collected in this little book. An effective remedy against boredom in any case.⁠⠀ Buy...

Is it a coincidence that the new edition of "In almost every picture" seems to be straight out of covid-19 quarantine life? And while most likely half of us made their own "sexy sofa" series during this stay-at-home-time, we probably have to admit that we are indeed not 1960's Ruby with all her incredible outfits and poses. And that we are also missing such a sexy sofa. You know, a tufted corner piece in a classy shade of beige velveteen, lingering in a sensual curve in the corner of our room. Not to mention the tassels!⁠ Erik Kessels is an expert in photographic coincidence, obsessively collecting the pictures that others throw in the bin. Over the years, he has developed a keen sense for beauty and a healthy dose of absurdism, which has led to this wonderful series of amateur photography books.⁠ Buy...

This is a copy, an homage, and a stroke of genius at the same time. Eckhard and Max Siedentopf, father and son and great fans of Toiletpaper magazine, delight us with the reenactment of the iconic photographs of Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. The result is extremely funny, as fantastic as their famous inspiration and incredibly well executed. The photographs even have a lightness and spontaneity that the deliberately staged images of Toiletpaper Magazine never had. Our only criticism is that we did not think of it first.⁠ Buy ⁠...

Yes, we also got some 'How to' books for all the little Tyrants among us – and those who considering to become one...

In the Painted Desert (Yes, that is its actual name!) there are beautiful pieces of petrified wood laying around. And even though they are under protection and shall not be removed by anyone, a lot of visitors can not resist the urge to take one home as souvenir.⁠ But over a thousand people sent their dishonestly obtained trophies back, together with remorseful letters. They tell stories of misfortune, illness, troubles, and even death, that the sender connect directly to their stolen petrified wood. For many, their hope is that by returning these rocks, karma will be restored and good fortune will return to their lives. Unfortunately they can not be put back into the park as wished by many, since this would spoil sights for future research. And so they are put next to a gravel road in one big "conscious pile".⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Bad Luck, Hot Rocks prints a selection of the most intriguing letters of apology accompanied by photographs of pieces from the conscious pile.

Like any model dictator also notorious Kim Jong Il sought to orchestrate his own figure in the media. But since he did not really seem to like words or maybe the sound of his own voice, who knows, he was less than rarely seen giving speeches. Instead he staged himself as the observer of his county. If you now think that this means him looking at great scientific achievements or military gear, you are far from it. Not that he did not also do that but he seemed to "go and visit" everything that there is to see in his country.⁠ A feared dictator with a hardly changing facial expression, wearing blindingly dark sunglasses, and followed by an entourage of bodyguards and officers while he is looking at random things is unwillingly comical, in combination with caption such as "Kim Jong Il looking at a radish", "Kim Jong Il looking at a dvd labeling machine", "Kim Jong Il looking at women bras" it makes us laugh with tears. So for today we will probably do nothing else than looking at Kim Jong Il looking at things. Buy...
