On Photography traces the artistic and institutional decisions that have influenced the Camera Austria association. Since its founding in the mid-1970s as an association of Austrian photographers, the group has had an important place in the European photography world, putting on exhibitions and symposia on topics in photography and, since 1980, publishing the magazine Camera Austria International. Operating through a network of photographers, academics and art critics from all over the world, Camera Austria has come to function like a laboratory shaping photographic culture. At the center of the book are the photographers that Camera Austria has worked with, whether in exhibitions, at symposia or in the magazine―among them Robert Adams, Nobuyoshi Araki, Lewis Baltz, William Eggleston, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Seiichi Furuya, Luigi Ghirri, David Goldblatt, Nan Goldin, Zofia Kulik, Tatiana Lecomte, Susan Meiselas, Peter Piller, Walid Raad, Michael Schmidt, Allan Sekula, Ahlam Shibli, Lieko Shiga, Manfred Willmann and Tobias Zielony.

This book presents 123 calling cards of artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, architects, graphic designers, illustrators etc.) from the 18th century to the present day. The facsimiled cards are slipped like bookmarks into a book by several authors on the history of the use of calling cards, the social context in which they were produced, and related historical and fictional narratives. The often unexpected graphic qualities of these personalized objects, each designed to capture an individual identity within the narrow confines of a tiny rectangle card, implicitly recount a history of taste and typographic codes in the West. But this calling card collection also lays the foundations for a microhistory of art, inspired by the Italian microstoria, or a looser narrative that breaks free from geographic contexts and historical periods. We can imagine how social networks were formed before the advent of Facebook, and how artists defined themselves in the social sphere, whether they were students or teachers, dean of the art school or museum curator, founder of a journal, firm, restaurant or political party, and so on. Superimposed on this imaginary or idealized network formed by chance encounters is a living network of students of art or history, historians or anthropologists, librarians, archivists, gallerists, museum curators and artists themselves, the network upon which this pocket museum is constructed. The sheer variety of perspectives and stories brought together here makes this book a prodigious forum for discussion. The carded artists include: Absalon, Anni and Josef Albers, John Armleder, Iain Baxter, Larry Bell, Joseph Beuys, Joseph Binder, Max Bill, Pierrette Bloch, Rosa Bonheur, Irma Boom, Aglaüs Bouvenne, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Broodthaers, Antonio Canova, Caran d’Ache, A.M.

The interview book „Kippenberger & Friends“ comes closer to uncovering Kippenberger the myth, through 25 conversations with artists, curators, gallerists, and friends who contributed approx. 55 documentary photographs from their personal archives, published for the first time. They give us their view on someone who left a lasting impression on them, in descriptions that are contemplative, funny, critical, and also self-ironic. The extremely personal memories bring to life not only Kippenberger himself; they also create a dense picture of the cultural life in a Germany which, torn between the sensationalist Springer press and student revolts, the hedonistic consumer culture of yuppies and the provocative rebellion of the punk scene, still had to become convinced of the maxims of its own actions. Josephine von Perfall started her doctorate degree on Martin Kippenberger in 2010 at the Department of History of Art at the University of Cambridge. The role he played in the development of post-war German art, in particular in his capacity as a “networker,” cannot, von Perfall asserts, be overestimated, and it is this role that is the key to understanding one of the most important chapters in German post-war art.
