HAUBITZ + ZOCHE: HYBRID MODERNISM -- MOVIE THEATERS IN SOUTH INDIA. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 128 pp. 27 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783959050777 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: India produces about 1,200 films in 24 languages annually and the world of cinema leaves its traces everywhere. Even before the recent Bollywood boom, the architecture of its movie theaters, a hybrid mix of styles, acted as a sort of social barometer. Cinemas built throughout urban and rural areas of South India from the 1950s to the 1970s sport a wild mixture of Western and domestic architecture. Brightly colored facades resemble stage sets and extravagant forms and embellishments set the mood for the audience to be absorbed into the silver screen. Hybrid Modernism, Haubitz + Zoche's last photographic project -- made before Haubitz's unexpected passing in 2014, captures the vibrant architectural and aesthetic qualities of a fast-disappearing world now being replaced by generic and cost-efficient multiplex theaters. The hardcover monograph packed with vivid color images is published following Zoche's solo exhibition, her first under her own name, at ERES Foundation, Munich (2015).
