DIETER ROTH: REYKJAVIK SLIDES (31,035) EVERY VIEW OF A CITY. Hauser & Wirth, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 48 pp. 29 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783952363096 In English.
Publisher's description: Inspired by the distinctive character of Icelandic architecture, Dieter Roth's Reykjavik Slides documented every building in the Icelandic capital in 31,035 slides shown simultaneously on multiple projectors. In 1995 Roth gathered a selection of these images along with his handwritten notes in English and Icelandic describing the project's development to create an artist book printed in an edition of 90. This newest edition presents a snapshot of this monumental project in 24 color photographs on noncoated stock with saturated, almost prismatic inks that beautifully communicate the texture of his spare and rough-hewn subject. Made with the assistance of photographer Pal Magnusson and the artist's two sons, Bjorn and Karl, Reykjavik Slides constitutes a comprehensive survey of place, diverting attention away from the artist to his subject -- the singularity of Reykjavik, which has been Roth's home since 1957.
