ANDRE GELPKE: SEX-THEATER. Ed. by Ginna Molinari. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 212 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783959050357 In English.
Publisher's description: Noted German socio-documentary photographer Andre Gelpke's (b. 1947) provocative series Sex Theater, produced in the 1970s, followed performers from the numerous sex theaters that populated Hamburg's infamous St. Pauli district. "The fascination that captivated me as a photographer came from the personality of the individual, from the performer who was prepared to realize in public the secret sexual fantasies of an inhibited society, simply in exchange for a fee." First published in 1981, the book quickly sold out. Republished after forty years this second edition features not only new editing but an expanded selection of the raw black-and-white images, new texts and a fresh design placing the work and subject matter in a very different light and social conversation than was addressed in the early 1980s, when it marked the commencement of an era in which so much is sexualized and commercialized.
