TOBIAS ZIELONY: THE CITIZEN. German Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2015, 2016. Published in association with Spector Books, Leipzig. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 288 pp. 30 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050852 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: German artist Tobias Zielony's photographs and films draw on the documentary tradition of uncovering lesser-known histories of people and places. His interest in social failures and the shortcomings of Western governments spurred past journeys to Manitoba, Naples, and the Southern California desert. For his newest series, The Citizen -- exhibited in the German Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2015 -- Zielony highlights the struggles of African refugees and activists who have become visible and vocal actors in the public debate on migration, freedom of movement, and the racist practices inherent in Europe's asylum policies. Zielony invited 12 African authors and journalists to take a critical position on his photos. His images were then published together with the writers' texts on the situation of refugees in Germany and Europe in 12 African newspapers and magazines. Citizen finally connects the images and writings together in book form. Past Spector Books with Zielony include Trona, 2010; Manitoba, 2012; Jenny Jenny, 2013; and Vele, 2014.
