WELTAUSSTELLUNG: STEPHANIE KLOSS Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 154 pp. with 107 ills. (68 col.). 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9783956791253 Bilingual in German and English.
Swiss binding. Publisher's description: The photographs and essays in this combination artist book and monograph reveal the invisible histories of human enterprise, idealism and trauma embedded in the work by Berlin artist Stephanie Kloss. Eight bodies of work in black and white and color made in locations as diverse as Israel, Japan, the United States, Germany and Greece, from 2006 to 2014, explore the mythos and utopianism of architecture. An idyllic Canary Island bears scant traces of Otto Muehl's Actionist commune and sexual crimes; the mute currents of the Mississippi Delta belie its devastation first by Hurricane Katrina and subsequently by the BP oil spill. The commonality--and one could say, colonization--of modernist architectural form rather than the peculiarities of place, nation or time seems to attract her lens. In Weltausstellung, Kloss speaks a collective photographic language that warns against the ease--and peril--of forgetfulness.
