JEAN-PIERRE MAURER & ROBERT MULLER: MORGAN IS SAD TODAY. Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 232 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783905929782 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The photo series by Jean-Pierre Maurer and Robert Muller captured the zeitgeist of 1960s Mod London. Exhibited only once -- in the Kunstgewerbemuseum Zurich, in 1968, without any commentary other than a text by Ettore Sottsass -- the series has now been republished. The title, Morgan Is Sad Today, comes from a song from the movie Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment (1966), which marked the introduction of the Free Cinema and a new form of movie making. The featured full-bleed, grainy black-and-white images preserve the feel of the myth-obsessed London of the 1960s, when Zurich Beat bands still posed for record covers wearing suits with skinny ties and leather ankle boots. Sottsass's text hews close to what the time period embodied without glorification or denigration, and with a subtle sense of amusement. A time capsule of an era when music, fashion and the arts were being redefined by a young generation desperate to create a reality all their own.
