NATASCHA SADR HAGHIGHIAN: TRAIL. Ed. by Natascha Sadr Haghighian et al. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. ISBN 9783959050135 In English.
Publisher's description: Trail harks back to a path that Berlin-based architect-artist Natascha Sadr Haghighian (b. 1967) created at Auehang, Kassel, as part of her dOCUMENTA (13) project. Located next to a memorial to fallen German soldiers from both world wars, the trail in this site-based work was "accompanied" by a sound element mimicking the items found. In the process of laying out the path, Haghighian discovered the entire slope consisted of rubble from the Second World War. In this publication, she follows the "trail" of debris with artists Pola Sieverding and Jasper Kettner, leading them from the Kassel-based armaments industry to stories of migration and forced labor and military vehicles named after animals. Via an exchange of letters with Anselm Franke, Avery Gordon, Ayse Guelec and other correspondents, Haghighian's findings are linked, revealing a view of historical continuities, loops and ruptures, resembling the layering of the debris itself. Haghighian creates solo and collaborative works in video, performance, computer and sound. She is collected by MoMA, NY; The Guggenheim, NY; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
