Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, War Primer 2

War Primer 2 is a limited edition book that physically inhabits the pages of Bertolt Brecht’s remarkable publication War Primer (Libris, 1998). The original was published in German in 1955 under the title Kriegsfibel.

War Primer 2 was published by MACK in 2011 and sold out immediately. While War Primer was concerned with images of the Second World War, War Primer 2 updates Brecht’s piece with images of the conflict generated by both sides of the so-called “War on Terror”.

War Primer 2 was produced in the artists’ studio in a limited edition of 100 copies, applying silkscreen and offset printed images to 100 copies of a 1998 edition (Libris, London) of Bertolt Brecht’s 1955 War Primer. This digital version combines critical and academic essays about War Primer with a screen based rendition of the artist’s book.

You can download the digital version here.

A very interesting catalogue on Wolfgang Tillmans’ exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm can be downloaded as a pdf here.

Transitions is an international collaboration looking at the changing city of Rochester, NY (USA), a former company town dealing with urban sprawl, new concepts of city planning, high unemployment rates and poverty. How does a city deal with transition? Urban development in America is often seen as exemplary for coming developments in Europe.

Transitions (so far) includes the work of Theo Baart (NL), Jason Bernagozzi (USA), FUA Krew (USA), Gregory Halpern (USA), Cary Markerink (NL), Juliana Muniz (USA) Oscar Palacio (CO), Andrea Stultiens (NL) and Dan Varenka (USA). The project is a collaboration between Visual Studies Workshop and FOTODOK. Partners in the project are the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
