THOMAS TAUBE: THE WHIRR OF THE IMAGE MACHINE (DAS SURREN DER BILDMASCHINE). Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 99 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783959050630 In English.
Publisher's description: The Whirr of the Image Machine is a hybrid, polyphonic narrative in which multiple points of view and voices are mixed. German video artist Thomas Taube intercuts texts by different authors and images to create layered narratives, and positions them so a commentary runs back and forth between them. The stories presented are original audio interviews with night watchmen from around the world. Taube sent questions to eight different people: night watchmen and women in Kabul, Tokyo, Yaounde, plus five other cities asking them for an account of their lives and work. Based on these conversations, Taube shot the film Dark Matters (2014). The artist's project paces itself with selected images set within each narrative in a way that is engaging and mysterious enough to continue the intertwining personal accounts. Short descriptive texts of each person are included by Malte Henke, Maruan Paschen, Daniel Pauselius and Clemens von Wedemeyer.
