KATHARINA GAENSSLER: TXT IMG. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 670 pp. 35 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050654 In English.
Publisher's description: Both survey and artist book, TXT IMG brings together 41 projects by Munich-based German artist Katharina Gaenssler (b. 1974) from her first photo installation in 2003 to her latest project, Bauhaus Staircase, at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. Like her photo installations that involve hundreds of single images to create a large-scale work, the monograph is shaped by contrasting fragments and whole. All 407,954 color photographs she took as material basis for her projects have been combined to form abstract color sequences for this book, intended to be interpreted anew. Coinciding with Ocean of Images: New Photography at MoMA, NY (2015), the over-scaled publication includes reprints of 34 articles on Gaenssler's work and an essay by MoMA head photography curator Quentin Bajac on her career and site-specific project at MoMA. Other contributors include Hans Dickel, Sabrina Mandanici, Stefan Romer, Wolfgang Ulrich, Peter Daners, Florian Ebner, Schube among others.
